Support » Plugin: Video Thumbnails » Video Thumbnail from Media Library

  • I just started using the plugin. On one post I embedded a video from youtube and the video thumbnail appears. On the other post I did today, I used the Add Media button to add a video to the post from the Media library but the video thumbnail did not appear. Should the Video Thumbnail plugin capture a video thumbnail of a video embedded in a post from the Media Library? If so, is there anything I can do to get the thumbnail for this post? Thanks

    Video Thumbnails will only fetch thumbnails for videos from the list of supported sites. Decoding videos uploaded to your own server isn’t supported because it would require special server resources unavailable to most users.

    ok Thank you for your timely reply

    I am also interested in relation to videos on my server. However I do not understand your message from above. Why not just detect an image and save it in a gallery like all other images of wordpress? This does not happen worries permission to visitors.
