A Thumbnail is the preview image that displays inside the Player before a viewer plays a video. When you first upload a video, Viostream takes a Thumbnail at the 10 second mark. You can also create your own Thumbnails from the video, or upload alternate images.
- From the Media Library, locate the Media Asset you wish to modify and click on its Title
- Click on the Thumbnails tab
Inside this tab you will find a default Thumbnail already created. This is the same image you see in the Media Library.
To create a new Thumbnail, use the Media Preview to seek to the desired section of the video, and then click the button. Viostream then captures a Thumbnail directly from the video and sets it as the default.
To upload a Thumbnail from outside of the platform, select Add from within the Thumbnail menu, and choose a file that you would like to upload.
To choose a different Thumbnail, click one of the images. Select Set as Default to assign the image as the Thumbnail. To delete an image, click the icon within that dialogue box.
