    Hi Martin,

    I have a problem. I enabled the option:

    If first image should be used and no image was found: Attempt to use the thumbnail of the first embedded remote content based on a provided URL, upload it into the media library and set it as featured image See a list of all supported services in a new window.

    But if i insert an embed code from youtube and publish the post, the thumbnail is not pulled. Why happens? The video is not private. Thanks

    That should work since the plugin recognizes embedded videos. May I take a look at the embed code?


    Hi Martin,

    Sorry for the delay.

    Im posting with embed codes like this:

    <iframe src=”; width=”1440″ height=”835″ frameborder=”0″ allowfullscreen=”allowfullscreen”>

    Is the right embed code for the plugin?

    I found a minor bug which prevented QFIP to find the correct YouTube video URL. Please upgrade to the latest version 8.4.6. It finds the video in the IFRAME code .

    Note: in WordPress is the URL in a single line sufficient to display the video on the webpage.


    Hi Martin,

    Unfortunately, still happens with the iframe code 🙁

    Thanks for the ending tip!


    I tried with the video URL and works well, but not with iframe

    And I tried the HTML code you provided above. It worked. May I take a look at your website’s backend?
