^ Maybe they plan to focus more on theme development, than on support…

I’m curious as to why you’re not just embedding the youtube videos directly, rather than using a thumbnail?

Additionally, why would you want to use images from external sources, perhaps with the exception of sites like flicker which must have their own resizing options/api.

And for images that are already in the wp-image folder but not resized, perhaps you could just recursively call that function on all the images in that directory?

for example if I want to use images from youtube, vimeo and dailymotion, they should be resized because default thumbnails from each site has different sizes. OriginalEXE’s answer I find to be the best solution so far.

If we are not allowed to use TimThumb then we should use WP built-in resize functions or to find another script(like fresizer, aqua resizer, etc.). But, for me here is something, that asa I know, only TimThumb is capable to do: resize external images.

So, how can we resize external images without timthumb? Sometimes we need this. Example: I have a youtube video gallery and I can get the thumbnails directly from Youtube(via API) and resize on my server, because on youtube they are available only in a few sizes and maybe I need other sizes, also.

Correct me if I’m wrong.
