Set a default thumbnail for a specific folder


I’d like to know is there is any possibility to have a specific thumbnail, by default, for every video uploaded or programmed to a specific folder?

Use case: one of my colleagues is programming every month all the recordings for our amphitheatres and has to manually add a thumbnail image for each recording. Having a default thumbnail for a given folder would be quite useful and save time.

Thanks, and take care

    @CORMIER Jean-Matthieu Hi! This currently isn't possible, so it is a great feature request. Right now, uploaded thumbnails are just able to be added to one video at a time.

  • Hi

    Thanks for answering. What is the next step in order to have this feature integrated into Panopto ? I'm sure other users would be interested in this as well.

    Best regards

    @CORMIER Jean-Matthieu Since this is in the forum as a feature request, other users can vote on it. Panopto considers the top requests strongly when deciding what features and options to build in the future. So the step would be encourage others to vote on your request if they are running into a similar issue.

  • Hi,

    I'm just trying to bump this post in order to gather interest. Please consider upvoting this :)

    Take care
