[Solved 2r] Thumbnails for video in Article

3 posts in this topic


First of all , thank you very much for the wonderful module. I've been waiting for it for a long time.

I have a small doubt - is it possible to show the image of a video say from youtube or vimeo, which is embedded at the top of the article. Till now, my thumbnails don't show the image from these videos all I see is : "No Image" .

It would be really great if you could help me do this, or even if you can help me achieve the same effect by doing something else.

Thank you,

Hi Sriraag.

It is hard to implement your requirement because we must detect your Youtube url then must get it image thumbnail.

This work is so complex.

But i have a trick.

Please insert video's image by your hand with <img> tag. But put it in a HTML comment, example

<!-- <img src="your absolute image thumbnail" alt=""/>-->

BT Content Slider can get image by detecting <img> tag

But the image won't be show because it is put in a HTML comment tag.

But please be carefull with your introtext limit character or words.

It should be large if you use this trick

I hope it works smoothly.
