When adding video content, underneath the URL input box it states:
"Add a YouTube or Vimeo URL to automatically generate a preview image. The image will link to the provided URL."
However, according to Vimeo, their URLs do not automatically generate preview images. They suggest using a static image with an associated link:
"When linking to your video from an image file, it’s best to use a static image that contains a play button. This will give the illusion of a video player and alert your audience that they are being directed to a video. The simplest way to generate a thumbnail with a “play button” graphic is by taking a screenshot of the Vimeo player."
Our question is can you confirm the statement on their page is actually true? Should Vimeo URLs automatically generate an image?
Thanks in advance
