Article Video thumbnail images

The Video Transcoder determines which part of the video is used as the "still" image when a video file is uploaded into the community. By default, the 5 second mark is used by Video Transcoder to select the preview image.  This can be adjusted in the site configuration, it's the "Poster Second" setting. This setting can be modified which implements the change across the entire community for all future video uploads. This modification is not retroactive, existing video uploads will not be changed.
