Embed Videos using Video Embed Field Module

Video Embed Field defines a custom field type that allows you to display videos from YouTube or Vimeo. Not only can you embed videos; but you can also display video thumbnails.

The module also allows you to define video styles, just think of a style as a video player. This means you can define a video style which is 640px wide on the article page, and then on the homepage define another style which is 320px wide.

We’ll look at how to implement custom video styles in the next video.

If you want to integrate other video platforms, then look at the “video_embed_field.api.php” file on how to implement the required hooks.
