I have a simple theme, with simple posts, mostly videos. I installed the plugin and I have featured image on. My problem, when it generates the thumbnail image, it automaticaly post’s it in the post. So it’s something like:
I want it to show up only the embeded video, and I need the image so when I post the link on Facebook to take the image.
If you’re up for editing your theme, you can find the file responsible for the single post page (this may help) and then remove the section of code displaying the featured image. If you want it to still show for non-video posts, you could go a step further and just wrap the code in a conditional statement like
<?php if( get_video_thumbnail() == null ) : ?>
FEATURED IMAGE CODE HERE
<?php endif; ?>
As for the Facebook issue, you can use meta tags in the site’s source to tell sites which image to use for sharing. A quick search turned up this plugin which should do it for you.
