    not sure I understand, as this is exactly what wp youutbe lyte does? what do you need to work differently?

    What I mean is that on the front page (blog roll), instead of rendering the youtube embedded video and it’s script, it should render the image screenshot of the youtube video only i.e. the front page should load only an image. The image then becomes a link to single post where the actual embedd is located, or better yet, on the same front page intiates the loading of youtube video and wp YT lyte script.

    Does it make sense? This is like a feature request, as I noticed the loading of YT videos in infinte scroll on mobile isn’t that fast (not good performance).

    Not something I’d put in the plugin as such, but makes sense and should be possible.

    It might take some tinkering to get it working, but I would put the httpv-link in the manual excerpt and have wp youtube lyte parse the_excerpt as well but using (a variation) of the template that is used for rss (which indeed shows the thumbnail without all js-stuff).

    Does that make sense? 🙂

    I’m working on a new version which has an API and which as such might help you accomplish what you want to do here. You can download the development version from http://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/wp-youtube-lyte.zip

    Looking forward to your feedback! 🙂

    I’m looking forward this feature as well.
    But I do not see the different in the “development version”.
    Please guide me how to enable it.

    BTW, great plugin! Thank you Futta!

    that functionality is not in the plugin as such piihuynh, but using the API (which is in the current version, cfr. the example in wp-content/plugins/wp-youtube-lyte/lyte_helper.php_example) and provided you have some development experience, you might be able to do what you wnat to accomplish.

    Aha, I will try.
    Thanks for your fast response 🙂
