Youtube image tag?

Post by Voros »

https://i.ytimg.com/vi/OcsGKMCY_Tw/hqdefault.jpg is a typical image shown when the video isn't playing. Replacing the string between /vi/ and /hqdefault.jpg and linking it, via img tags, will show the corresponding video's preview image/whatever you call it.

Would be nice if tags were available such as

Code: Select all

[ytimg]8d60rNRtc5k[/ytimg]
Would essentially be the same as

Code: Select all

[img]https://i.ytimg.com/vi/8d60rNRtc5k/hqdefault.jpg[/img]
There was an imgur tag added recently last I checked. What about this too? I understand it's not in high demand, but it can be handy when needed.

I don't really understand the use case for this. The tag would be easy enough to add, but the reason for it baffles me.
