This feature is only available in PoliteMail 5.0+.
Play Button Overlay
To add a play button over your images, in the PoliteMail Builder, 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
You can also create a video thumbnail from your image. 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.
Click Save, and a video thumbnail will be created in your message.
