Can I change thumbnail image in video gallery in html?

Sep 18, 2013

Q: Hello! I am interested in purchasing your business edition of this lightbox software. I want to embed Youtube Videos, but I don't like the thumbnails that Youtube generates. Can I create my own custom thumbnail image to be used?


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 -->
