VIDIZMO allows you to capture, upload and update a thumbnail for digital media files, making it easy to recognize and organize them. A user can either:

 

i. Capture thumbnail within the video OR 


ii. Select and upload a thumbnail of their choice


A thumbnail can be uploaded at either of the following steps:


i. During the uploading process OR


ii. After uploading the video from Media Management page. (Moderator+)


Note: When a user uploads any digital media file on VIDIZMO, it will evaluate whether that file is in .mp4 or playable in HTML5 and the thumbnail will be created automatically. However, if that file is not in .mp4 format or playable in HTML5, then thumbnail will be created when the file is in the transcoding state.
