Edit video thumbnails
When you upload a new video to your Asset Library, by default the first frame is chosen as a thumbnail. It might happen that the thumbnail is a black frame. If you have a series of black thumbnails, it hard to recognize a specific video. That is why, you might want to edit the thumbnail to be more meaningful and recognizable for users.
- Click on the asset you want to update.
- Open the Edit tab.
- Expand the Generate new thumbs tab.
- Select the frame you prefer as a thumbnail with your mouse and click Current video position.
The new thumbnail is generated within a few minutes.
You can also automate the video thumbnail generation so that you do not have to manually change it for every video. For example, you can decide that a thumbnail should be created from the screen that appears after 4 seconds of the video have passed.
