Improve thumbnails to show a picture

I would like to be able to have a thumbnail picture (which could be from the video or a specific jpeg or png) so that we don’t get the big pink Microsoft stream. This would be relevant for yammer.

We use Microsoft stream video link in our application using oembed. Same issue. No thumbnail image - only stream logo. Can this be fixed pls.

Same thing in Teams channel posts.  It's not showing any preview/thumbnail.  It would be nice to take advantage of Stream's built in thumbnail to be the "preview" default in any "Share URL to Stream Clips" in any O365 apps. Especially Teams EDU.

Hi,  I would like to include the comparison between YouTube and Microsoft Stream embeds in Teams conversation channels.

Seems this is in place but still abysmal in it's compression and blurriness.


I've tried building custom thumbnails for upload at all the standard embed dimensions and SharePoint still provides a crazy-blurry thumbnail slide.
