Video Lightbox

Whether I can create my own thumbnails in embed video website

Nov 18, 2011

Q: I'm looking at your Video Lightbox features, but it's unclear to me whether I can
create my own thumbnails. As you well know, the automatic selection of thumbnails more
often than not gives a very unattractive thumbnail. I'd like to be able to create .png,
.gif, .jpg or .tif of my choice that I can then use as the thumbnails for my videos.
Is this possible with Video Lightbox?

A: Unfortunately you can not do directly in Video LightBox app,
but you can do it manually.

You should upload your own image on the server (e.g. YourImageName.jpg) and change path
to video thumbnail in Video LightBox BODY section:

<!-- Start VideoLightBox.com BODY section -->
<a rel="#voverlay" href="http://www.youtube.com/v/y7ssHOBFvGk?autoplay=1&rel=0&enablejsapi=1&playerapiid=ytplayer"
  title="Fan Video CARS">
<img src="images/YourImageName.jpg" alt="Fan Video CARS" /><span></span></a>
<!-- End VideoLightBox.com BODY section -->
