Is there a way for me to manually merge everything over instead of waiting for it to happen? We have around 150 videos on O365 video - I don't really want to download then reupload each one!

Some time in the last week the thumbnails on almost all of our Office 365 uploaded videos have disappeared and been replaced with thumbnails like below image.  Is anyone else seeing this in Office 365 Video?thumbnail.png
