Load youtube thumbnail


Recommended Posts

Hi I am new to Phaser. I have been asked to load an youtube thumbnail based on a given ID.

Without using their API, the thumbnail can be retrieved this way: https://img.youtube.com/vi/<youtube ID>/0.jpg

Is there some restrictions when using statements like this: 

game.load.image("youtubeTN", "https://img.youtube.com/vi/<youtube ID>/0.jpg");



var sprite = new Phaser.Sprite(game, youtube.x, youtube.y, "youtubeTN");

I was able to load an image locally but the image wouldn't load if it's from an external site. Thanks!
