Select Thumbnail from video

For a few lectures, I've had to manually replace thumbnails since the professor's laptop wasn't connected at the start of the recording, so I got a black imagine or "no signal" for the class thumbnail. It would be nice to go to the timeline and pick a thumbnail or even have a selection of thumbnails to choose. Right now, what I've been doing was to play the video, grab a screen capture of the first instance of the PC screen, save that locally and then upload the thumbnail, which seems a bit unnecessary when it would be better to just pick a thumbnail that can be used by the system.

Hopefully this is something that can be considered for a future release.
