Need to display Thumbnail before Video plays -- Android

I am using JW Player in my Android App.
I am able to play the Video successfully, But not able to find any method to display Video Thumbnail before Video plays.

Current Code:
JWPlayerFragment jwPlayerFrag = (JWPlayerFragment) getActivity().getFragmentManager().findFragmentById(;
JWPlayerView jwPlayer = jwPlayerFrag.getPlayer();

Log.d(TAG, "Video URL: "+submissionObject.getCloudinaryResponseObject().getVideoSecureUrl());
PlaylistItem playList = new PlaylistItem(submissionObject.getCloudinaryResponseObject().getVideoSecureUrl());

This does not gives any thumbnail-image before playing the Video. Neither it is available in the sample code.
