The MediaAce plugin allows you to automatically download the featured images for posts with embedded content.
The featured image is fetched for embed videos like YouTube or Vimeo. Self-hosted MP4 is not supported.
The auto featured images feature works only for posts set to the Video post format.
When a video is submitted via frontend uploader, the uploader set the post format automatically to Video.
When you add video embed manually on the backend, you have to set the post format to Video manually.
To enable this functionality, please follow these simple steps:
- Go to the WordPress Admin › Settings › Media Ace panel
- Switch to the Featured Images section
- Enable the Auto-download embed featured images checkbox.
