  • Are you going to fix the thumbnails with twitch/justin embeds? I can’t seem to get them to work.

    Good work!
    This plugin does not work for http://www.youku.com. Can you support http://www.youku.com?
    Thanks!

    This is a very old thread, is 2.0beta still alive?

    Yes, but but because there are few end user changes and because I have limited time to dedicate to non-paying projects I can’t give a timeline of when the next beta release or public release will be. If you’re signed up here you’ll receive updates when they’re available.

    Hi, i want to use thumbnails, instead of big videos.
    I’ve installed the plugin. But i do not understand how it works.
    It suppose to do it automatic, when you paste the code of youtube in your post?
    Is there an “how to use”?
    B.t.w. I am building my first WP site.

    Thnx, Andrew

    I have multi video service in “custom field”. Then i need post more custonm fild name; but When I save the page return white , can fix :/?

    Hey I sent an email and would love to use this for my site immediately but still haven’t heard back. Dying to have the HD thumbnail!

    Would be also awesome to be able to pick the part from the video you want to show as thumbnail!

    Have you signed up for the beta mailing list here? I can’t seem to find your email. When an update is available I send out an email, which means you might not get it right away but lately I’ve been sending out updates every other day or so.

    As for picking your own thumbnails, that’s unlikely to ever be fully supported by this plugin. Currently the plugin gets the thumbnail by requesting one from the video’s source (YouTube, Vimeo, etc.). I believe a few sources may offer a few different thumbnails (beginning, middle, end) in their API, so it may be possible that these options are eventually offered but I don’t see it happening soon.

    Hi, I may be able 2 help with…..

    Scan on Demand and Automatically

    There are also reports that in certain situations the plugin doesnโ€™t scan on publish, so thumbnails have to be manually scanned. Iโ€™d like to fix this, but need some help discovering what circumstances lead up to this.

    I faced this problem with gravity forms, it allows user submitted content on the front end and you have options to create a draft, pending review or publish. When using the publish option, video thumbnails doesn’t grab the thumbnail.

    I’d like to reiterate, I don’t code, what I’ve done is probably harmful so I’d love some advice. I solved this by removing function video_thumbnails_past_callback() from the plugin and adding to my themes function.php I then changed it to

    function video_thumbnails_past_callback() {
    	global $wpdb; // this is how you get access to the database
    
    	$post_id = $_POST['post_id'];
    
    	echo get_the_title( $post_id ) . ' - ';
    
    	$video_thumbnail = get_video_thumbnail( $post_id );
    
    	if ( is_wp_error( $video_thumbnail ) ) {
    		echo $video_thumbnail->get_error_message();
    	} else if ( $video_thumbnail != null ) {
    		echo '<span style="color:green">✔</span> Success!';
    	} else {
    		echo '<span style="color:red">✖</span> Couldn\'t find a video thumbnail for this post.';
    	}
    
    }
    
    ?>

    So I basically removed the Die, I then put this code within a post loop so it could grab the post id rather than rescanning all posts.

    <?php
    if (has_post_thumbnail( $post_id ))
      {
      //do nothing coz it has 1
      }
    else
      {
      video_thumbnails_past_callback();
    }
    ?>

    It “works”, I’d love to know…… if there is anything wrong with what Ive done as I’m a complete amateur.

    just a quick revision, I didn’t need or want the error handling so i removed

    function video_thumbnails_past_callback() {
    	global $wpdb; // this is how you get access to the database
    
    	$post_id = $_POST['post_id'];
    
    	$video_thumbnail = get_video_thumbnail( $post_id );
    
    }
