Hello, I use the plugin Video Thumbnails to pull a default image out of my videos and automatically set it as featured image. This is the exact plugin:
Since I started using Quick Featured Images Pro, the video thumbnail is still being created and added to the library, but has stopped being set as featured image and I end up with no featured image. Do you know if there is a way to make your plugin work nicely with this functionality? I tried using the “first attached image” function, but it doesn’t work in this case.
I love your plugin otherwise, but this is a big problem for me. Please let me know if you have ideas or suggestions.

Thank you for pointing to that aspect. The plugin does not have such a function. I will take some researchs on how to implement this function into QFIP. Due to christmas holidays it will take a while.December 22, 2016 at 6:03 pm #7020
Hi, I actually already have another plugin to do the video thumbnail, my concern is that it doesn’t seem to work with your plugin. I used to use Easy Add Thumbnail to set my featured images (https://wordpress.org/plugins/easy-add-thumbnail/) and it worked fine with Video Thumbnail. I like the additional features of your plugin, but may need to switch back to Easy Add if I can’t them to work nicely together.December 30, 2016 at 11:55 am #7112
I took a deeper look at it. Just to be sure: Do you talk about the “Preset” area? Or the bulk edit section?December 30, 2016 at 4:57 pm #7119
Hi Martin, I’m talking about the preset area.January 1, 2017 at 1:58 pm #7182
Thank you. I developed a quick solution and will publish it soon. I am thinking about an option for considering the video thumbnail or not. Do you need that?January 2, 2017 at 10:36 pm #7202
Right now I use a separate plugin to automatically find a default thumbnail for embedded video (YouTube, etc.) and then set it automatically as featured image (this is the plugin: https://refactored.co/plugins/video-thumbnails).
If this functionality were included in your plugin, that would be wonderful!January 4, 2017 at 2:40 pm #7226
The upgrade 5.4.2 let VT set featured images. I am working on more support of VT by QFIP.
