Here’s how I would do it…
1. Choose the video you want to re-direct people to.
2. Screen capture that video with Snag-it or something similar. (You’ll end up with a graphic of the video).
3. Go to your Youtube video you want to display and grab the URL (Click on the SHARE button below the video to display the URL).
4. Go to your Wordpress dashboard. Click on your Media button on your dashboard, and upload the snag-it photo of the video you want to display.
You can do it within a page or post as well.
When you upload the photo you’ll see a place that says…File URL. That’s where you place the URL you grabbed from Youtube.
When someone clicks on the photo (that looks like a video), it will take them to your video.
If you want to take them directly to your Youtube channel, go to your channel, and grab the URL from your browser.
Hope this helps!
