How to use poster image on Unbounce

Hello, I'm trying to use a poster image for my video that I'm embedding on my unbounce landing page. At this point, all I know how to do is use the javascript/iframe codes pasting them in unbounce's "embed video" dialog.

The default starting image on video isn't very flattering. That's the ultimate issue.

Please help!

Hi, there.

My name is Alex and I am one of the Support Engineers at JW Player. I will be more than happy to assist you with your questions.

Admittedly, I’m not too familiar with Unbounce. How are you currently embedding our player? Are you pasting JavaScript somewhere?

Please let me know. Thanks!

I'm posting it using the iframe embod code. Unbounce has a WYSISWG interface with an "embed video" drop and drop option. I copy and paste the iframe code into there and viola it works.

From there, however, I don't know how to use a custom poster image.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Hi, Robert.

When you go to the content’s detail page on your account dashboard, do you see the poster image there? Can you please give me a link to a page where you have the affected player installed?
