Video Thumbnails
This is my go to plugin for video plugins (2 posts)

    This plugin does an amazing job of pulling the thumbnails of videos and setting them as featured images. There are some that don't get found or set, but with its high success rate, I attribute that to an anomaly of the video rather than the plugin.

    To be honest, I am not currently using this plugin (I used it regularly for months, but then changed the format of my site). But because of a previous support issue I posted, I came back to try it out again. It set the vast majority of thumbnails as featured images for the more than 250 videos on my site; and they displayed without issue on the blog page.

    Because I have a different setup now, I needed to remove them, and the remove feature very quickly removed all of the thumbnails from the posts, as well as the media library.

    I highly recommend this plugin. Thank you, Sutherland, for maintaining and supporting this fine plugin.

    Thank you for the kind words! Glad something I needed has been able to help others as well.

    In case anyone upgrading to 2.0 sees this and is trying to remove older thumbnails, I wanted to point out that the new remove feature works with custom fields on all posts, but only can remove thumbnails entirely from the media library if they were added using 2.0 or later because older versions added an item to the media library without storing anything identifying it as a video thumbnail. Wish I had thought to do this sooner, but I'm glad to hear that everything worked fine for you!
