I have upladed several videos from YouTube to my site. However not one thumbnail has been gerenated. Is this the intent? Can you have thumbnails from YouTube?
To my knowledge, no. HOWEVER, you may want to link to the thumbnail on youtube.com in the body of your video.
If you can figure out a programmatic way to retrieve the thumbnail to a video from youtube for me, I'll add it to the code.
That would be great!
Searching this issue brings up many nodes on the matter. I believe CCK Embedded fields can generate them, however I found this to be the most useful
It seems you can grab the thumbnail from you tube in the XML. This would be awesome in views for a grid view.
OK got it. We have yet to "tackle" cleaning up the youtube part of the module. I've been concerned mostly with the Ffmpeg portion and making fixes there. When I hit Youtube, I'll check into adding this. Realistically, it may not be until we rewrite the thumbnailing part of the module, as the Image module we link to is being "squeezed" by D7 and some adjustment will have to be made. We're thinking of moving this into a CCK field.
That would be great and from the posts above I do not think it would be too hard since you are really just taking the thumbnail from youtube.
I understand your time constraints. I used to develop for Joomla. But this is a feature that could attract more people to the module, a you tube movie directory using views to show thumbnails in a grid format would be attractive to many folks
great module, let me know if i can help you in any way
We fixed youtube thumbnail support, so you can now use this module with you tube thumbnails, we are working on to integrate full youtube API with the module, then you can have more features video directly upload to youtube site and modufy/delete it, and rate/comment on youtube videos etc. So all will take time, but if any volunteer I can give instructions.
Does youtube thumbnailing work in 5.x-1.5 or a newer D5 version?
no, only for D6 version
I was not able to get the thumbnailing to work
there is not thumbnail displaying in views
hmm, but for me it works, what is the issue u got? try typing http://sitenem/video and if you still cannot see thumbnails then update the module
I have updated the module. I have tried both the dev and the current release.
you can see at www.mychemistrytutor.com/video I see no thumbnails
I had thought this would appear in the view field for the thumbnail. It does not.
fixed it, i did not see the youtube settings, sorry
I'm having what seems to be the same problem, only adding the developer key didn't resolve it. Anything else I should look at?
There is no relation ship with developer id and thumbnail image, please try changing youtube settings, what is the version your using?
I had to add the developer id to use the thumbnails also
I'm on 2.8, what settings should I change? Thanks!
please see the youtube video configurations
Thanks, the config was already done. Added a new node and went back and checked the view. I have it displaying titles but it still won't display the corresponding thumbnail.
