    Does anyone have a code¬†snippet to share that I could add a video area on the homepage of the Minimum 2.0 theme in place of the Featured Image?¬†I want to have a video that is the same 1600×600 size of that image. Would even be nice if it was a widget. Not sure.

    You can pretty much follow Brian’s add a widget tutorial here to register the widget:

    You’ll have to do something like this to change the function in functions.php to include it:

    /** Add the featured image section */
    add_action( ‘genesis_after_header’, ‘minimum_featured_image’ );
    function minimum_featured_image() {
    	if ( is_home() ) {
    		   genesis_widget_area( ‘welcome-text’, array(
                           ‘before’ => ‘<div class="welcome-text widget-area">’,
                        ) );
    	elseif ( is_singular( array( ‘post’, ‘page’ ) ) && has_post_thumbnail() ){
    		echo ‘<div id="featured-image">';
    		echo get_the_post_thumbnail($thumbnail->ID, ‘header’);
    		echo ‘</div>';

    Plus whatever css you need.

    Note that code didn’t paste well so pay attention to the function already in your file.
