    Hello,

    I’m trying to figure out how to call the thumbnail and video of my VideoPress hosted videos.

    I’m trying to create a custom Media Feed so I can display these videos in a Cooliris wall.

    My custom XML looks like this:

    <chanel>
    <?php foreach ($posts as $post) { ?>
    <item>
    <title><?php echo get_the_title($post->ID); ?></title>
    <link><?php echo get_permalink($post->ID); ?></link>
    <media:description><?php echo ‘<![CDATA[‘.tfwr_rss_text_limit($post->post_content, 500).’

    Keep on reading: ID).'”>’.get_the_title($post->ID).’‘.’]]>’; ?></media:description>
    <media:thumbnail url=”http://example.com/pl_thumbs/A.jpg”/>
    <media:content url=”http://example.com/pl_images/A.jpg”/>
    <pubDate><?php tfwr_rss_date( strtotime($post->post_date_gmt) ); ?></pubDate>
    <guid><?php echo get_permalink($post->ID); ?></guid>
    </item>
    <?php } ?>
    </channel>

    Where can I get the content for “thumbnail url” & “content url” ? Of course i’d like it to be dynamic…

    Thanks,
    CG.

    The blog I need help with is tfwrvideo.wordpress.com.

    Does this help?

    From media library, play a video, wait till you find a desirable frame, then click “Capture Thumbnail” button. The video will pause and display “uploading…”. Then it will display “Thumbnail saved”. Click the “OK” button and your thumbnail image (also known as a poster frame) is updated automatically.
