Getting a thumbnail or poster image with Mux Video is easy. Just plug a Playback ID into the Image URL API and get your first image. Use the
time querystring parameter to choose a thumbnail time (in seconds).
Of course, you might want to do more than just this, like cropping the image or choosing a different frame. The Image URL API supports a number of other options via querystring parameters:
rotate, cropping, and more.
Note that there is a default limit of 30 thumbnails per asset. If you need more, contact Mux.
See the Thumbnail Reference for detailed documentation.
