Plugin does not replace embed video everywhere on my website

Unfortunately, Embed Video Thumbnail can only replace your embed video in your posts and pages body.
If you need to trigger video replacement in custom locations on your website, you can use the following filter :

echo apply_filters(‘ikevt_video_to_thumbnail’, $videoURI);

Thumbnails are not showing

Make sure allow_url_fopen option is enabled in your php.ini, and php-curl extension is installed and active.

Avis

Opinion

Muy buena y sencilla, un plugin que hace exactamente lo que uno quiere sin tener cosas adicionales que lo vuelvan mas pesado, gracias me asido muy util

A real mess up

Not only re-sizing the thumbnails on my homepage to something blurry and way too small, this plugin increased the loading time with 0.2 seconds. ‘Amateurish’ is the best single word I can add to this useless plugin

Great plug-in with great support

The plug-in works great, the thumbnails looks nice and clean and the pages do loads faster.
I wanted to have a more personalized player and had to contact the support to guide me, they responded in the same hour and helped me through it with great results.
5 stars because I found Nothing negative to say about it.
