Video Image Thumbnail Extractor


Sometimes we need to show the different images of a video on our post instead embedding the whole video. To give a video snippet it is a quick way to embed web video thumbnails on your post (youtube and vimeo only this time). More video sites support will be added soon.

How does this plugin work ?

You need to put some keywords with your video URL as below:

images_link : Fetches image thumbnails
images_withlink_link : Fetches image thumbnails with a hyperlink to original video

e.g. images_

e.g. images_
