Automatic Featured Images from Videos

Sharraxaad

When placing a YouTube or Vimeo video within the first 4000 characters of a post, the thumbnail of that video will automatically be uploaded and set as the featured image for the post as long as the post does not already have a set featured image.

In addition, after setting the video thumbnail as the featured image, an “is_video” post meta field is updated to allow for the use of conditional statements within your loop.

Pluginize was launched in 2016 by WebDevStudios to promote, support, and house all of their WordPress products. Pluginize is not only creating new products for WordPress all the time, but also provides ongoing support and development for WordPress community favorites like CPTUI, CMB2, and more.
