Setting thumbnails on Viddler

7 August 2009

A feature that has been sorely needed on Viddler since day one has now finally made it out of cold storage and onto the main site. Using an image that you upload, rather than using a still frame from within the video, as the video's default thumbnail (or, the frame you see before you hit play) is now possible.

Read more about this feature on The Viddler Blog in a tutorial on how to get the best quality out of this feature called: How to: Set an image as a video thumbnail.

You can see the results on Eat Weird Episode 5. Gorgeous.

Also, this feature is exposed via the Viddler API's setThumbnail method.
