    So I just snatched a domain from the Godaddy deal and I plan on making a movie trailer site.

    I was thinking I should grab some trailers from Youtube, but how would I go about doing that? I know there is a Wordpress plugin out there that does this well, but I forgot the name. I wanna make this whole thing mostly automatic.

    Or maybe I should go about this a different way?

    I believe you're referring to TubePress.

    No, I'm looking for something that will automatically post a Youtube video to my blog using keywords. Tubepress looks to be all about galleries, unless I'm wrong?

    Shouldn't be too hard to make.
    Just find out how a search query is structured, find a way to find the newest movies. Get the html of the search results page(With PHP). Loop through it and list them all on your website.

    Youtube has a nice API that lets you search their database for videos that match your keywords and lets you show the videos on your own sites. They even supply code in multiple languages so you have an example to base your site on.

    I can't post links yet since i don't have enough posts, but do a google search for "youtube data api" and the first results will give you all the information you need.

    So I tried WPVideoTube and it works wonderfully. Unfortunately, thumbnails are not created, and my theme requires them or else the whole site looks ridiculous. Does anyone know how to remedy this? Or perhaps another plugin that does this too?

    YT thumbnails is quite ez to get it will look something like this:
    h**p://i4.ytimg.c0m/vi/w0IhZ6gYjrI/default.jpg
    [YT-domain]/vi/[video ID]/[photo name]
    photo name is: default, 1, 2 and 3 with dot jpg in the end.
    if you want bigger thumbs put "hq" infront of the name like hqdefault etc.

    the key is just get the video id and put it inside the videoID segment it's the same for every one.

    Hope this help.

    You can use wp-youtube or use a youtube search rss feed and input into autobloged or wp-o-matic.
