Yammer video thumbnail

Occasional Contributor

Video content is key when sharing information on yammer - and the thumbnail used for a video is also very important. When i upload a video in my yammer post (as an attachment) - it auto selects the thumbnail - is there a way to edit this? 

I have also tried uploading my video first to Stream (which does allow me to select a thumbnail) however, when embedding a Stream video in my post, the video has the title and play menu covering most of the video - which doesn't look good. 

What is the best way to share an embedded video?

@AllisonCraig Stream at least gives you the option to define the thumbnail (or even upload a custom image). That's in my opinion the best option, though as you note not perfect.

Agreed! Do we know if this will be addressed at some point in a future update?
