When attaching a video to your post, you'll notice a thumbnail icon overlaid on your video
Clicking on that icon will bring up our video thumbnail customizing screen.
You can either upload a custom thumbnail image (clicking the gray box) or choose an existing frame of that video.
Custom Thumbnail Image
Please make sure that the thumbnail image you upload has the same dimensions as the video.
Example: If your video is 1280x720, your custom thumbnail image should also be 1280x720
