I want to fade the "image" preview under the play button

I am using an enterprise version of the player. I have been tasked with changing the opacity of the preview image before the video plays to punch up the play button more. Is this possible? I changed out the button image for one with a semi-transparent png but when implemented the player forced a height to the element but not a width so that it took up the width of the player and was book ended by bg images which looked bad.

I ended up creating an overlay image for the whole player and when clicked it fades and starts the player. But having problems with the code. I was wondering if there is a way to do this that may be built into the player API? Or some css styles I might be able to latch on to?

We unfortunately do not have an option to control image opacity within the player. If possible, you could utilize a darkened image file to achieve this, however this would be done through actual image manipulation.
