How can I insert the thumbnail? Is it possible to modify the thumbnail?

Can I add a thumbnail to my videos? If so then, what are the steps to be followed to do that?

Hey Nora!

Yes, you can generate the thumbnail from your video. Follow the given steps below:

Collection ID and Asset ID

  • Login to your Gumlet account.
  • Click on Collections from the Video drop-down menu on the left side of the dashboard.
  • Copy the id on your Gumlet Dashboard. For example:

  • Now, send a request to this link:{COLLECTION_ID}/{ASSET_ID}/thumbnail-1-0.png

  • Another way is to generate images using a time query. For that just add the time parameter to the above link.{COLLECTION_ID}/{ASSET_ID}/thumbnail-1-0.png?time=1

Please visit this link for more information: Images from Video


Please setup an easy way to upload a thumbnail or clip a frame from the video. There should be a way to do this from the UI.
