How to set first frame of video assets as thumbnail?


Level 4



We have a requirement to set the first frame of video assets as thumbnail for that video asset when we upload the video asset. I referred this document to set it manually after the video is uploaded and processed.

I have enabled the dynamic media but the change thumbnail button in not showing as in the video bcz it is disabled in this path "/etc/dam/dynamicmediaconfig". How to enable and see the button?

 Also, do we have process to set the thumbnail via java code or config when we upload?

Hi @keerthana_hn  In HTML5 <video poster="imageurl"> tag poster attribute is used to set thumbnail, if this is not set by default it will display first frame of the video as poster.
