Title: Video Sitemap - Missing Video Player Information
Post by: Daisy7 on July 17, 2011, 09:33:36 AM
Hi,

I recently purchased A1 Sitemap Generator Pro to make a video sitemap for my Wordpress video blog.

I have followed your online video tutorial but I find the sitemap missing two very important details.

1.  There is no thumbnail information generated in the sitemap.
2.  There is no video player information generated in the sitemap.

I am using the Wordpress 'Featured Image' to add the video thumbnail into the post. A1 Sitemap Generator Pro is not seeing the featured image thumbnail.

For Google to actually show your video in its search results you need the video player location and the embed option set.

Example:
<video:player_loc allow_embed="yes" autoplay="ap=1">
         http://www.example.com/videoplayer.swf?video=123</video:player_loc>

This item is entirely missing in the generated sitemap.

Without the thumbnail and video player information Google will not show your video in their search results.

Am I able to fix these problems?

Thanks!
