You create and define video thumbnails from the advanced settings.
To do this, perform the following:
NOTE: To see which image formats are supported in your instance of Sitefinity CMS, navigate to Settings » Advanced » Libraries » Images and check the Allowed file extension setting.
NOTE: When the proportion of the original thumbnail dimensions is different from this of the predefined thumbnail, the video thumbnails are resized so that the longer side of the thumbnail fits the respective side of the thumbnail. Images are aligned up and to the left of the predefined thumbnail.
RESULT: The video thumbnail profile is created. To generate video thumbnails with the defined parameters, you need to reupload the videos in the library.
EXAMPLE: If you want Library A to have thumbnail profile A, in the Advanced settings, make video thumbnail profile A default. Reupload the videos in Library A. Then, make video thumbnail profile B default and reupload the videos in library B.
You apply a predefined video thumbnail profile via the Video gallery widget.
On the Settings tab, select the desired thumbnail profile.
For more information, see Video gallery widget.
For the thumbnail of a video, you can either upload a custom image, or capture a frame from the video.
You do this in the Videos module.
For more information, see Configure the properties of a video.
