Video Showcase is a plugin that uses video links from Youtube and Vimeo to generate thumbnail images for the videos and display those images as video embed links on the front end of your site. When a visitor clicks one of the thumbnail image links the video for that link is displayed in a styled thickbox. The different video links are stored in groups so that the different groups can be displayed through out your website by placing them in widget areas or using shortcodes.
