You would also want to make sure you have a Theme Builder template set up for All Posts. Make sure it contains a Post Content module, which is where the video will show in your post.
2. Set the Post Format to Video
You can either add a new post or edit an existing post. When you are in the backend editor, you will see the “Format” or “Post Format” options on the right side.
