The project page says this is still being worked on so I'm not sure if this is a known issue or not - but thumbnails aren't showing up for YouTube when you choose that option. Yes, I have an API key and have put it in, so I'm not sure what the problem could be if this is supposed to be working now or not...

Im also wondering about this, I cannot get thumbnails for youtube to work ( I have api key).

I see no way to add thmbs to a teaser, its just full video.

Is there anyway you can document this module a little better its unclear if this is even availible or being worked on.

Yeah even though it looks like others have gotten this to work, I am not seeing thumbnails from youtube as well. Here are my config steps:

Created youtube account
My Account > Account Settings > Developer Profile > enter required fields including password (secret)

Download and install Video CCK module

Home » Administer » Content management
Video CCK configuration
Check Allow videos from YouTube
Enter your YouTube API Key
YouTube API Secret

Home » Administer » Content management > Content types
Add content type
Add field for video cck
Configure field
youtube as provider is checked
video preview size left as default
Thumbnail I tried all choices (random, first, second, all, etc)

> Display field
label hidden
teaser: image thumbnail
full: default

and no thumbnails....
