Forgive me if I'm missing something obvious, but through the new contributor site, is there a way to set my thumbnail image of the video?

Thanks in advance!

Thank you for the quick reply, Mat.
The lack of ability to set a thumbnail frame makes doing any kind of sunrise time-lapse video pretty much a futile effort here, since all anyone can see is one of the first frames of the video; a black frame, or something close to it.

I would love to submit this as a feature request. Adobe is the only video stock agency I have heard of that does not support this feature.
Thanks again for your time.

It seems to use random frames, not even the first so that the contributor could have some control over what potential customers see.  I would also really like to see this capability added.

I am doing time lapses and the poster frame / thumbnail selected by Adobe Stock does not represent the asset I want to sell. This feature is available on other stock image platforms (Shutterstock, Pond5, etc.) and impacting the ability to sell my content on Adobe Stock.

Still no custom video thumbnail in 2020? An ETA on when this feature will be added would be nice.

Been here. Is there any progress on setting a custom thumbnail to vids? Shutterstock has it... 😄

Here's an example, in my animation, objects are present for the first 5 seconds and they are missing in the last 2 seconds, Adobe chose the last frames from my animation as a thumbnail, and it's just empty white background, but the thumbnail should contain the main objects that should attract the buyer.
I also clicked "Find Similar" under my video and saw hundreds of pages with a white background, these videos are completely different from mine, the topics on the video are different, they are only similar to each other on white background.
