YouTube Thumbnail In Facebook From Blog Post [FIXED]

By           0 Comments     , ,
Someone has messaged me that How to display YouTube thumbnail in Facebook bringing it from Blog Post and While posting YouTube Video in Facebook it shows incorrect thumbnail. So here I am going to show you both of the ways one by one.

If you have posted YouTube Video in Blogger Blog Post and Want to Show Thumbnail in Facebook then follow these steps

First of all you need to know that you will have to add an extra code into your blogger post.
The real iframe code from YouTube will be added with an extra image code as describe below.

For the first way you will have to copy embed code and paste it into your blogger blog post's HTML view.
The embed code which you will take from YouTube will be similar to below one but Video ID which is in yellow highlighted will be changed (Size may however be changed).
<iframe width="440" height="320" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/NxRnjjBtnfQ" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>
The above video code will not show a thumbnail until you don't add an image code with it. The image's code is shown below and should be added after </iframe>.
<img alt="You Can Give Image Description Here" src="http://img.youtube.com/vi/Change Video ID Here highlighted in yellow above/0.jpg" style="display: none;" width="400px" />

Customization

Replace "You Can Give Image Description Here" with any description of thumbnail if want to give it or else leave it as it is.
Replace "Change Video ID Here highlighted in yellow above" with the your video ID. (Here Video ID is from  My YouTube video, yours will be changed)

Explanations

After combination of both above codes. The final code will be something like below.
<iframe width="440" height="320" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/NxRnjjBtnfQ" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>
<img alt="Make Money With Dailymotion Thumnail" src="http://img.youtube.com/vi/NxRnjjBtnfQ/0.jpg" style="display: none;" width="400px" />
When you will put these both codes in HTML view of your post. Your post will show YouTube's thumbnail in Facebook and Blog Post's thumbnail.
