SupportCategory: WP Content PilotRemote URL For Featured Image with WP Content Pilot
RK asked 3 weeks ago

Hi, I am trying to use WP Content Pilot for YouTube videos. It works nicely. But, I would like the featured image to use the remote URL from YouTube instead of being added to the media file so I can save disk space. Is this possible? Thanks.

Hi RK,
Thanks for your interest in our plugin. Sorry to inform you that it is not permissible to use resources from other servers. If you want to feature an image then you have to stick with the current system. Hope you got the point. Thank you.

Thanks for your reply…
I ask because I am thinking of buying your plug-in or WordPress Automatic.
They have this feature so I thought you might have it too.

Thanks again for sharing this with us but it is not about YouTube.

Kibria,
You must not understand what I am saying.
When your plug-in does auto post, it pulls the YouTube image from the API as the featured image and saves it to media.
The other plug-in does not save the featured image to media.  It displays the image by hotlinking to the url from the YouTube API instead.
So, all the images are not saved to the media folder on your server.

I got your point from your first message. It is not fair to use resources from other servers that you are not paying for. We will look further into it to check if it is implementable. Thank you.
