2 min read
Grab your viewers' attention with an eye-catching cover image for your video. You can either upload a cover image, or choose a frame from the video itself. 
  • JPG, GIF, PNG are the supported file types. 
  • We recommend an image ratio of 16:9 and 1920 x 1080 pixels for JPG and PNG. 
  • For GIFs we recommend 960 x 480 pixels.  
  • A 15MB maximum applies to both images and GIFs.
  • Videos have a maximum support size of 100MB.

To change the cover image of a video:

  1. Go to Video Library in your site's dashboard.
  2. Click the Edit icon next to the relevant video.
  3. Click Change cover under Cover Image.
  4. Select one of the suggested frames, or click the Add icon to upload an image.
  5. Click Set as Cover
  • If the upload fails, please check your browser settings. Try clearing cache and cookies and check that your internet connection is working.
  • Currently, it's not possible to add cover image to a Single Video Player. Vote for the ability to do so in this feature request.
