I am trying to work out if there is anyway to get a thumbnail of a locally uploaded video through the media module. At present, once the node is created the only display of the video is a file link which goes directly to play the video. Changing the display settings doesn't alter this. Is there anyway that the node page can display the actual video rather than a link to it? It would also be handy to get a thumbnail of the video to put in a view listing block

Many thanks

i think you need a special formatter like mediaelement to manipulate appearance of video or audio

Use media 2.x with fieldable file entities, then you can attach a thumbnail and render that.
