Set post Featured Image from embedded video (4 posts)

    It seems like all the pieces are there, but nobody's put them together completely yet..

    I'd like to automatically generate a post thumbnail (featured image) based on embedded video within the post

    This plugin generates a thumbnail from a youtube video:

    And in this thread, neononcon describes how to do it manually:

    Is there any way we could do this automatically? Perhaps by replacing featured_image's image field with the thumbnail generated by Youtube-Thumbnailer?

    Eager for your thoughts
