Auto Featured Images

Media Ace allows you to automatically download featured image for posts with embedded content.

Supported media

The featured image is fetched for embed videos like YouTube or Vimeo. Self-hosted MP4 is not supported.

Post format

The auto featured images feature works only for posts set to the Video post format.

Frontend post

When a video is submitted via frontend uploader, the uploader set the post format automatically to Video.

Backend post

When you add video embed manually on backend, you have to set the post format to Video manually.
