The thumbnails of Youtube videos are generally low in quality.  Sometimes, the thumbnail is not enough to get the people attention.  This can lead to lesser video views.

Here is a small we have written that works as follows.

  • A custom thumbnail is displayed at the size of 560px width and 615px height.
  • When the user clicks on it, the image fade outs.  Yes it will get animated as fade out.  We use jQuery fadeout function for it.
  • After that the video gets displayed.
