Storefront - DVD Thumbnails

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The DVD Thumbnail for Storefront creates a Netflix-like experience for your viewers. 

Showcase your content with movie poster style thumbnails, with or without video titles (click here to learn how to hide the titles)

The DVD Thumbnail feature transforms all of your thumbnails to the DVD format, with images at a X x X size. If no DVD thumbnail image is uploaded, the thumbnail will display as a grey gradient. 

For video embeds, you will have to select a freeze frame from the video content as a default thumbnail that keep the X x X image size. 

If you want to try the DVD Thumbnail feature on your Storefront theme, contact your customer success manager or send an email to support@vidcaster.com to activate it in your account at no additional charge.
