Can I change thumbnail in lightbox für videos?

Jun 18, 2013

Q: Hi, your product is great.

Just one problem the thumbnail image generated is usually not the best image I would use. Is there an easy way to generate a different image?

A: Unfortunately you can not do directly in Video LightBox application, 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 -->
