  • I am also wondering about something similar to this. Just so it doesn’t have to scan all the posts again, especially when most of them will already have the thumbnails.

    This is something planned, but I don’t have a timeframe for it yet.

    I’ve not been able to get a successful bulk scan run with 1.8/2.0 of Video thumbnails very likely due to the time/memory limit a php script is allowed to run (in constrained hosting environments).

    Is it possible for the plugin to run staggered scans in batches of, say, 10 at a time?

    Addendum: During a bulk scan, is it possible for the plugin to replace placeholder featured images with its updated video thumbnail ?

    An open idea for other users: If the author cannot (understandably) attend to this request, there may be hope in a very long winded approach. It might be worth simulating a dev environment by trying mirroring your wordpress to a LAMP/WAMP PC and running the implementation, and then synchronizing the database back with the online hosted version.

    Right now each post is sent as an individual AJAX request, but the problem is that when you have 1,000 or more simultaneous requests it could slow down your server enough to make the scripts time out. What I’ll likely do first is make the individual requests sequential so that it reduces the load on the server and hopefully eliminates the problem for most users. Once that’s done I’ll work on a UI for selecting only a range of posts to scan.

    Hi Sutherland,
    Just a follow up on the staggering feature. Is this something you still plan in the 2.0 build?
