Thanks, that is very helpful info. I will also be looking at how other WP templates and plugins go about creating thumbnails from streaming/embedded media and see if I can come up with a hybrid solution.
I wish that I could promatically force a one size thumnail solution for slideshow items, that would be helpful.
Also, how is order determined in a slideshow. is it the first media added as featured item?
BTW, is this a custom forum mechanism that you designed? Also is there a way to get notifications for replies to posts?
Thanks. Is it possible to make a gallery of featured static images and video and have related posts always pull the first image instead of trying to pull the video thumbnail? How is related posts different from the other thumbnail renderings. I think there may be a way to just cache all of the videos thumbnails then just use the static image as featured video with an embeddable link programmatically. What php/js files are responsible for featured image/embedded video custom field functionality in the portfolio posts?
Thanks in advance.
Please specify gallery image. I am using Corona template and only renders static images and Vimeo images as thumbnails in Related Posts. See example of 3 YouTube video thumnails that are not being rendered at the bottom as related posts. I am using the “Add Featured Media” option. I also tried add additional static images along with YouTube url. I also tried static image by itself, which also added a very large image in the posts, which I would like to remove if possible.
