Support » Plugin: Featured Video Plus » Featured Image Display

  • Resolved theimgweb


    Hey Alex I was hoping this plugin would pull the Thumbnail image for the Movie and display that in the Blog Roll, not the actual Video itself.

    It looks like the original Featured Video Plugin may have had this function by using:

    the_post_video_thumbnail(post_id) // show the video thumbnail

    Can I do the same with your plugin. I don’t want to manually set a Featured image.

    Thanks for developing this, it is a life saver!

    The Plugin actually pulls video thumbnails and adds them to your gallery. If no featured image is set for the current post the plugin will set the video thumbnail as featured image.

    Featured Images can be displayed using the the_post_thumbnail() function.

    If the current theme does not make use of featured images the plugin cannot set them. I will consider adding an the_post_video_thumbnail function to 1.4. Maybe until then you can enable Featured Image support in your theme and use the_post_thumbnail?


    I only have a question, is possible change the size of the
    automatic featured image that the plugin in creating?

    The plugin just pulls the image which is generated by the provider.
    For YouTube for example the plugin requests some plugin information from -> This information also contains a “iurlmaxres” which links to the highest resolution screen capture available.
    E.g.: The data from contains this picture:

    So, no. Using the FVP Plugin you can not change the featured image size. But you could take a look at the Post Thumbnail Editor plugin.
