Video thumbnail quality | Forum

You can check this plugin out. It still works on 1.8.4, but the dev hasn't been here for a bit. It's only $5, and it allows you to choose the thumbnail quality. Note that not all videos have high res thumbnails.

Works Great with v1.84


So glad to have this looking good before site launch. Had forgot about it untill final testing.
