Can video be used for blog thumbnails?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone.Just wondering if anyone has managed to use video for blog thumbnails? My client wanted to animate the thumbnail images and gifs were blurring. So she sent me square videos hosted in Wistia. But I can't see an option to upload these. Alternatively, has anyone managed to successfully use animated images as thumbnails using a different option?Thank you in advance!Lynne

I don't think that is possible to use a video as a thumbnail. I think your gif idea is probably the best option. I just tried it and it seemed to work for me. What do you mean it was blurring? Gifs are typically very small and low res so that can cause problems. I would try using something like GIF Brewery by Gfycat, that way you can better control the quality.

Otherwise, you can try to look for a third-party plugin.
