Support » Plugin: Automatic Youtube Video Posts Plugin » Problem with the thumbnails, and video

  • dear developer , thanx for great plugin 🙂

    i’m Using theme Sahifa, and the thumbs not showing in home page or category , i used another video thumbnails to creat it automatically from video , i tried it when i added video manually in normal post, but not work with your plugin because your video looks virtual i mean i can’t edit video or anything, it’s not appear in EDITOR after post published only the meta desecration , i tried with other solution is to show images and thumbnails into post itself, then use another plugin that automatically create featured images from first image, but also not work for same reason , the video and images not appear in EDITOR in wp-admin when editing previously created post, only show the Description , how can it be normal post ? i tried many things but failed,

  • any help plz ??

    i contacted the theme developer and he told me he use this in the theme files :

    , functions/home-cats-wide.php
    , functions/home-recent-box.php
    and loop.php

    <?php if ( function_exists("has_post_thumbnail") && has_post_thumbnail() ) : ?>

    i hope this make thing easier for you to help me if u can

    please read here … You need to import the following code into Single.php under wich ever DIV you would like to use… This will import the feature image only > the thumbnail image should by default turn into the feature image

    <?php the_post_thumbnail( $size, $attr ); ?>


    if ( has_post_thumbnail() ) { // check if the post has a Post Thumbnail assigned to it.
    <?php the_content(); ?>

    By default you shoudnt have to edit any “functions” files, if the author did his job properly.

    thaank you , the theme already show the default thumbs in the home page and category [ Default thumb , default featured image or first image from the post ] aalthough it doesn’t show thumbs for video

    i made some modification into the video.php file to make it show thumbs and some images in the post, but unfortunately it doesn’t show the thumb of the post and show default thumb or no thumb at all .

    Notice : when i EDIT post from one the plugin made , it doesn’t show any video in the editing form or the thumb, only show the meta description .

    i’ll add image later to describe my problem .

    here’s what i mean no appear when editing :

    first image show the post that plugin made :

    it has video , meat description and the 3 thumbs from the video :

    View post on

    when editing the video it show only i can edit the description not to edit in video or thumb after post published

    View post on

    if the post shows in the editior it will solve my thumb problem because i’v plugin get the first image and make it featured image and other plugin get video and take default image and make it featured image .

    but the two plugins and other plugins can’t read the video or the thumb

    To answer king master first question, one of these plugins might help, there all great:

    Video Thumbnails: This is by far the best when it comes to this plugin.
    Automatically retrieve video thumbnails for your posts and display them in your theme. Currently supports YouTube, Vimeo, Facebook,,, Dailymotion, Metacafe, Wistia, Youku, Funny or Die, and MPORA.

    Video Embed & Thumbnail Generator: Generates thumbnails, HTML5-compliant videos, and embed codes for locally hosted videos. Requires FFMPEG for thumbnails and encodes.

    Auto Post Thumbnail: Automatically generate the Post Thumbnail (Featured Thumbnail) from the first image in post (or any custom post type) only if Post Thumbnail is not set manually.

    thank you , but i wrote i tried all this plugins and none of them helped

    Any solutions? I’m also trying to figure this out…

    No , i disabled the plugin since the last reply from me 🙁
