    Ce plug est pile ce que je recherche, une vignette dans le post et un vidéo taille normale quand je clic dessus mais seulement : ca ne marche pas !
    il me marque cette erreur :

    ARVE Error: There was no thumbnail found. This video is most likely not aviable anymore or a wrong ID was in the shortcode

    Hi again Nicolas - I should add, that Vimeo works just fine (still extra and unneeded code though)

    Hi Nicolas,

    Using your plugin works fine on my localhost (youtube as well) but the moment I throw the site on a live test server I have, I get: “ARVE Error: There was no thumbnail found. This video is most likely not aviable anymore or a wrong ID was in the shortcode” … Although the code is correct and it works locally.
    I can provide you with a login for the testserver at
    I want to use this for a client site I ened to have ready soon (as your plugin is responsive ;) and I certainly don’t mind donating for this plugin .. But need it to work ;)
    Alsi, I’m using types/Views (for custom posts/querys) as well, and I can’t figure whether it is Views or your plugin, that outs in excessive and unneeded code (empty P’s and tags, sometimes before, sometimes after, sometimes not at all...
    Even if the videos don't show at the moment (check the "music videos" in the menu) you can see with firebug, that the layout looks funky some places, which is due to the excessive code.

    Please help? :)

    Thanks for your plugin but I’m having problems with youtube thumbs.
    Youtube tumbs are not showing up. With metacafe it’s ok.

    Is this easy to solve?
