Thank you for posting the code, and sorry for the dumb question... but where do I insert that code if I just want it to modify one video gallery block ? 


You need to target video gallery block id. Can you share site url? We can check easier.

You can add some custom css to get what you want.  I just wanted to make the default icon bigger, so I used this: 

.sqs-video-wrapper .sqs-video-overlay .sqs-video-icon {
   background-size: 88px;
   height: 88px;
   width: 88px;
   margin-left: -44px; /* for centering the icon, must be 1/2 the dimension */
   margin-top: -44px;

Be warned it looks a bit blurry on a high dpi screen like a phone or high end laptop.

If you want to use a different icon, you can change the background property.  The default is:

background: url('//assets.squarespace.com/universal/images-v6/damask/play-button@2x.png')

If you upload a new icon as an image you can update the background property to reference it, and use the above to size it appropriately.
