[resolved] Disable automatic featured image replacement (3 posts)

    I love this plugin, and how it automatically generates a static featured image based on the video. However, I'd really like to use a static image (on category/archive/search, etc) and use the featured video only on single posts.

    Whenever I call the featured image in the theme (custom image sizes included), it's automatically replaced by the video. I understand this is a feature of the plugin, but is there a way to override this and manually make the choice in php?

    Yes, if you want to integrate the FVP PHP functions in your theme manually you can disable the featured image replacing under Settings -> Media: "Replace featured images".

    Then you manually have to use the_post_video() or get_the_post_video() in your theme sources - just like you use the_post_image() or get_the_post_image().

    The problem with the automatically added Featured Images is, that they, if using YouTube, are often of low quality. For many videos they do not provide HQ images..

    Is this what you are looking for? Version 1.3 will bring some more customization options.
    Thanks for your rating!
