- Head over to the third tab Player states to customize the player’s start, pause, hover and end screen.

1.5 | Duration (start screen only)
This setting shows a timestamp on the start screen below the play button.
1.6 | Show moving thumbnail (start screen only)
Moving thumbnails are generated for each new video that is uploaded to your account. A moving thumbnail skips the first two seconds of the video and then plays the following five seconds in a loop.
When disabled a static thumbnail is used instead. When enabled:
- Desktop: the thumbnail animates when the cursor hovers over the video player.
- Mobile: the thumbnail animates once the video is in view.
1.7 | Related clips (pause/end screen only)
When enabled, related content will be displayed during the pause and/or end screen.
1.8 | Playlist for related clips
Select a Playlist to determine the related clips that will be shown. When no playlist is selected, the player will select a related item based on relevant metadata. Learn more about creating and managing playlists.
- Use deep link for related items
Deep links can be set in the clip metadata. When enabled, clicking a related item will not play the content in the current player; but instead the viewer will visit the deep link URL configured for that particular clip. Learn more about metadata.
- Randomize related clips
Enable this setting to apply a random order of related clips.
1.9 | Show last video frame (end screen only)
By default, the last frame of the video is shown on the endscreen. Disable this setting to display the video thumbnail instead.
2.0 | Autoplay Next
You can choose to automatically play the next clip after a countdown:
2.1 | Only when pre-roll ad is available
Only play the next clip automatically if there’s a pre-roll advertisement available (only applicable when pre-rolls are configured on the playout).
2.2 | Autoplay next timeout (seconds)
Enter the amount of seconds the player should wait before starting the next media clip. The default value is 8 seconds.
