This gets interesting. I just tagged 1.2 of the plugin. This time the main new feature is support for local videos. Using the open source HTML5 video player videoJS the plugin now enables you to use your own videos as featured videos.
Just upload the video as *.mp4, *.webm or *.ogv, copy and paste the „Link to Media File“ into the Featured Video input field. To ensure maximum compatibility with all your visitors it is best to provide the same video in a different format as a fallback. When the visitors‘ browser does not support any of the two video formats the video will be displayed as ordinary flash.
