I’ve played around with that plugin, but I don’t think it does what I am looking for. I would like to replace a featured image (the background image behind my post title) with a video (a moving picture behind my post title).
Hi Cory. Having a video as a featured image isn’t something that can be done within Aesop. The New York Times Aesop site is heavily modified. For example, if you use the Chrome inspector tool, you will see that the video section is completely custom coded by them (one example has a CSS class of “nytmm_fs_video”).
Your best option will be to find a plugin on WordPress that will allow you to use a video as a featured image, instead of an image. Even with a plugin, you may need to write some custom code to tweak it exactly as you want it to appear.
