Support » Plugin: WP YouTube Lyte » YT thumbnail not appearing

  • fashionwanderer


    The youtube video is black with the red play button in the middle.
    Why isnt the plugin pulling the youtube thumbnail.

    On my other site the thumbnail is pulled and fills the spot.
    any suggestions?

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    I get a “403 forbidden” error on the thumbnail, so something is blocking the locally cached thumbnail being served. Either disable local thumb caching or ask your hoster (or configure your security plugin) to make sure PHP inside wp-content/plugins/ (especially wp-content/plugins/wp-youtube-lyte/lyteCache.php) can be accessed directly?

    hope this helps,
