How to Apply an Animated Preview Poster to Your Player

To apply the Animated Preview Poster, perform the following steps:

  1. Access the player wizard by editing an existing player or creating a new one.


  2. Under the 'BASIC INFO' tab, go to the 'PLAYBACK' area and verify that your 'Desktop start' and/or 'Mobile start' fields are set to either 'Click' or 'Mouseover'.

    Important! If your player is set to 'Autoplay' no poster will ever display.

  3. Go to the 'LOOK & FEEL' tab.


  4. Under the 'LOOK & FEEL' tab, scroll down to the 'START SCREEN' area.


  5. Click on the 'Preview poster' field and select 'Animated' from the drop down list. A 6 second animated video preview poster will apply to your click-to-play player.

  6. Click on 'SAVE'. Your player animated poster is saved and applied to this player.
