Auto Blog feature images not working

Autoblog featured images
Images only get featured if they have the exention, ie, .jpeg.

A link like this for the image : http://s1.reutersmedia.net/resources/r/?m=02&d=20131124&t=2&i=814553218&w=&fh=&fw=&ll=580&pl=378&r=CBRE9AN0ASE00

Will only appear in the article, but the code is not smart enough to get the image. Can we get this fixed? Make it scan the page for the image and grab it. ??

It took a while to just understand why it wasnt working, until I cross compared with a feed that had images as full links.
