How can I select image for thumbnail in free video lightbox?

Oct 25, 2012

Q: I'm very excited about your product because it might just solve an ancient problem of mine when displaying videos on my website. Question: Is there a way for me to chose or adjust the way the thumbnail is displayed? Right now, it is selecting a frame that is further along in the video and that doesn't look very nice. Please tell me this is something I can fix because it will confirm whether or not I should buy your product!

A: Thumbnail is selected automatically and it's impossible to change in the current version of VideoLightBox. But you can use any image you like as thumbnail.

You should manually edit the code for BODY section of Video LightBox in that case, for example:

<a rel="#voverlay" href="http://www.youtube.com/v/TaAmsnOghUQ?autoplay=1" title="football;">
<img src="images/YourImageName.png" alt="football;" /><span></span></a>

Don't forget to upload "YourImageName.png" file on your server.
