Vimeo thumbnails not loading

We have some content on Youtube and some on Vimeo. The YT stuff loads great but the thumbnails for Vimeo aren’t loading, the videos do though.

Here’s the code I am using:

{exp:url_tube:thumbnail src="{video}" width="120" height="67"

EE 2.7.2
URL Tube 1.5

Hey Koala,

Vimeo thumbnails work a little differently that YouTube ones. Please make sure you have “allow_url_fopen” enabled in your php.ini file. That means you should see

allow_url_fopen = On

in there somewhere, and it should NOT have a semicolon at the beginning of the line.

I’ll work on getting a cURL version of this working for users who can’t set that flag in their environment, probably by next week, so be on the lookout for that if the suggestion above doesn’t help.
