  • Resolved TheDogBox


    Is there anyway to change the default thumbnail size retrieved from Vimeo?

    I’m using the auto_thumb parameter:

    [video_lightbox_vimeo5 video_id=”xxx” width=”800″ height=”450″ auto_thumb=”1″]

    I want to show a thumbnail of up to 440px x 250px. But the thumbnail displayed is only 200px x 150px, so it is really pixelated.

    Try editing the following CSS code with your preference.

        position: relative;
        width: 200px;
        height: 150px;

    Let me know if the above helps you.

    Thank you

    Sorry, I must not have explained the problem correctly. I wish to display the thumbnail as a 440px x 250px image.

    The problem is, the thumbnail displayed from Vimeo is the second smallest available at 200px x 150px.

    So I’m taking a small thumbnail and scaling it up to fit a 440px x 250px box, which results in a pixelated image.

    Vimeo does provide larger format thumbnails, and what I want is to access them.

    Looking through the code, if I change line 290 of misc_functions.php from:

    $thumb = $VideoInfo[‘thumbnail_medium’];


    $thumb = $VideoInfo[‘thumbnail_large’];

    that gets me the larger size image from Vimeo. What would be great would be to hook that entire wp_vid_lightbox_get_auto_thumb() function.
