How to Add YouTube Video Thumbnails
as Featured Images in WordPress
Our popular WordPress - YouTube plugin can now automatically
grab the thumbnail of the first video you embed in each post/page and set the image as the featured image shown on your
blog home. The plugin provides each post/page with the highest quality possible featured image available from the YouTube
API; i.e. 480x360. However, the sizing of the thumbnails is handled by your theme, so if you have a responsive theme, the
images will be handled accordingly.
If you've downloaded the plugin, activate the feature by going PRO here ».
You can also take a look at the sample images below that have been generated using the plugin and even watch the video at
the bottom to see the plugin in action.
