Video thumbnails are the face of a video; most users choose videos with catchy thumbnails. It is recommended to choose an animated GIF thumbnail over a static one. First and Last few portions of your video will be merged and shown as a thumbnail (endless loop/loop continuously). Your customer will get to know that it is a video attached and not an image (static).
To set the thumbnail:
Below the video preview, click on the Video Thumbnail icon.
By default, the GIF Preview is selected. This lets you grab the attention of your prospects.
If you want to change the thumbnail, then select your preferred thumbnail.
Default Frame - Displays the default thumbnail of your video.
Upload Frame - Select and upload the frame from your local drive.
Choose Frame - Select the frame from your video.
You can now use an image and video as a virtual background for your videos by using the Virtual Background feature. It can be any existing animation or background videos or images that you want to use as your virtual background. In addition to that, you can also use your webpage screenshot as the virtual background to add value to your brand.
To apply virtual background:
Below the video preview, click on the Virtual Background icon.
You’ll see the default background templates.
Folder - Choose the folder you want to add the background; Tags - Add tags, if any; Show Content Type - Choose videos or images to set as background.
The Default (None) tab allows you to reset your background; the Add Background tab allows you to add background either from your local drive or G-drive; the LinkedIn Background tab allows you to add a LinkedIn screenshot as your background; the Website Background tab allows you to add a Website screenshot as your background.
Once you’ve selected your preferred background, click on Apply.
Note: By clicking on the Cancel button, your virtual background selection will be discarded. However, you can always choose the video from your Library to apply a virtual background later on.
