Embed video with still image on "top"
Posted on 2011-09-19
I have a video that needs to be used on a webpage. I understand how to do that basic item. What I am looking for a way to overlay a still image on the container that when clicked will start the video playing on the site. The issue I have found with YouTube and Vimeo is that the freeze frame they use for the embed image is the exact middle of the video. Typically this frame is not very pleasant to look at and does not convey what the video is about. I am hoping to have nice looking image that will keep the user on the site not open a new window to the video hosted site.
