    Hi wordpressers,
    Wondering if anyone can help me.

    Problem:
    I am using viduze theme and posting videos without a problem.
    My issue is that when they are posted to Facebook, they are missing an image, so I need to make sure the video thumbnail is being set as the featured image on a post. The plugin “video thumbnails” would do that, but only for oembeds inside the post content it seems (not finding the viduze “video post” specific post type thumbnails)

    Solution:?
    I am thinking the best bet would be to “show” the video thumbnails plugin the video URL somehow, maybe with a hook on the post publish/update press.
    Just not sure how to do it, so any ideas out there on how?

    Thanks in advance for your advice and knowledge.

    I could write some code to do this myself, using a hint I got from the Video Thumbnails plugin, ie, input the Vimeo ID into this URL and parse for the URL of the thumbnail…. etc… but Sunderland has already done it, so doesn’t seem sensible to re-do.
    Thoughts?

    Have you checked the video thumbnails settings? There are options to enable it for custom post types or custom field.

    Thanks Sutherland 🙂
    I tried that, then installed in a test environment, got it working there fine.
    Went back to the server, and it auto-detected a different field, then tried a new post, no result, then auto-detected, got the first field it picked up, and started working again.
    The in-post box doesn’t seem to work, but the bulk one does, so that will do the trick for now 🙂
    Thanks for a great plugin. Will def buy the pro version in the near future.
