In PoliteMail 5.0+, there are now two ways to add a video thumbnail to your content.
Play Button Overlay
The first way is to Add a Play Button Overlay using the PoliteMail Builder.
To add a play button over your images, go to Content > Images. Select the image you want to add a play button to.
Then click on the play button icon to add a Play Button Overlay.
A new preview window will pop up. Select the button style you want and click Save Thumbnail.
Your new image with a play button overlay will appear in your images.
To add your new image to your message, drag-and-drop the image into the message body. Alternatively, you can double click the image to add it.
Please note: this method creates a play button overlay only. You will need to add a hyperlink that brings users to the video (either on the image itself, a button, or a link)
Creating A Video Thumbnail
The second way to add a video thumbnail to your content is by creating a video thumbnail. Insert your image into the email body, then right-click on the image and select “Create Video Thumbnail.”
In the pop-up preview window, you can add the video URL and give the thumbnail a name.
