Custom Thumbnail is a feature which you can use to control thumbnail for published or embedded videos. This poster is an image which will be displayed over your video before the viewer decides to press the Play button.

To access this feature, go to the APPEARANCE & STYLE. You can choose from 4 different ways of adding your desired image.

  1. You can paste a link of .png, .jpg, or .gif file in the Image URL field
  2. You can Select From Thumbnails which will generate a thumbnail automatically. Then you can click Create New and create a thumbnail from an exact time during the video
  3. You can Upload your own image
  4. Or you can choose from your Image History

Do not forget to click the PUBLISH button to save your changes.

We recommend using the image size of 1280x720, however, it is best to upload an image which coincides with the resolution of your video.
