Get the Youtube or Vimeo image still from the video URL with PHP

Category : PHP · by Nov 3rd, 2012

This is a handy function to retrieve the youtube of vimeo still from the video URL. To use the function you just need to pass the $url parameter to the function. The $size parameter is optional and will by default return the large image. If you pass “thumb” as size it will return a small still icon.

Change line 15 to  return $hash[0][“thumbnail_large”]; if you need larger vimeo.It seems the parameter $size applies only to yt
