Getting Video Thumbnails

I’ve got a content model in which media can be uploaded. The media could be videos or images. I wanted to know if there is some way to request thumbnail images for the video, or will it be necessary to change my content model to make the thumbnails a separate entity?

Hi @JoelJohnson,

To my knowledge the Assets API does not have the ability to autogenerate a thumbnail image for a video, so you’d have to add a new image field for the thumbnail to your content model, which the user fills in manually.
