Is there a way to use Youtube's thumbnail instead of putting extra effort uploading thumbnail?!
I mean, youtube's thumbnail is enough most of the time... and saves a lot of time!!
This has a huge impact on Youtube sermons without thumbnails! it doesnt look good without the thumbnails!
You can do this by not uploading an image to the sermon (see screenshots) and this example - http://passage.themeisland.net/sermon/youtube-video/. With that, though, you might also need to set the player correctly if this is overriding. See additional screenshots for this.
Let me know if that helps.

Ah yes, I see what you mean now. That's pulling the image set in the post/sermon (as you are aware). There is currently not an integration to identify if there is no image set, to query the video url in the post/sermon, identify if it's youtube or vimeo, and extract the video poster from there - and I'm not sure this is possible without loading the video for each (which might add to load time significantly).... For this, you could use a default image (create a standard post/sermon with the default image > install the Duplicate Post plugin > and clone the post/sermon > then just change the title, description, video url), but this specific use case that you present is not encompassed in the current feature set of the theme.
Thanks Charles, from my point of view, i think when listing sermons posts, it would be great to have a feature that allows me to tick an option for getting static thumbnail from youtube instead of uploading :), thanks anyways,
Agreed. If I can find time to add this to my backlog, I will, but I can't make any promises at this time unfortunately.
