Just a notice about videos when they don't have thumbnails (you know, when those smileys are showing): it causes serious CPU usage and memory leaks in every browser.

Yes.

I don't know an easy fix for this... because sometimes it is due to YT not processing the thumbs. In the cases where it is our thumbs, we could have some checks in place.

I already have an admin feature to 'Regrab Thumbs' for a particular YT video... this might also be open to Directors, not sure.

The problem only occurs when the thumbnail rotation is called for (on large thumbnails). Maybe there is a way to fix this in javascript... but I doubt it. I guess we should just try to narrow down why some thumbnails are failing, and sort that out. I'll look into this the next time I see a missing thumb.

I'd imagine that if it failed once, it would stop trying again Cheesy but I don't know how it works in the first place.

Basically when uploading to YouTube if you change the thumbnail for the video at all you can regrab it for this site and have it show the new thumbnail here instead of the old one.

I'm clicking that, but it doesn't seem to work.

It only works if there is a change in the thumbnail to something like a custom thumbnail. It doesn't work on older playlists too well either as I have learned.
