A vid teaser is a short preview that plays for members who have yet to purchased your content. The teaser will also be generated into a gif that will play when members hover over the vid thumbnail.
You can either generate a 9 second preview from the vid, or upload a custom edited Teaser that can be up to 30 seconds.
When editing you vid details (click <Launch> after uploading, or click <Edit> on the vid on your profile or in the Content Manager after publishing) find the section titled "Teaser", click <Edit Teaser>, and you will be given the following options:
Create from vid
Use this option to select a 9 second clip of the vid you are uploading as the teaser. When using this option, the Teaser cannot include the first or last 9 seconds of the vid. After making your selection, a progress bar will appear to let you know when the Teaser has been generated.
When selecting the 'Upload' option, a window will open to select a vid file. The file duration must be between 9-30 seconds and no larger than 50mb. After making your selection, a progress bar will appear to let you know once the file has fully uploaded.
Once a teaser is generated or uploaded, you will have new options available under the 'Teaser Options' dropdown menu.
The <View current teaser> option allows you to review your Teaser to ensure that it's exactly the way you want it, and the <Download teaser> option lets you download the teaser which can be great for promotional use!
