We changed a default placeholder image for Video items in our Gallery, but whatever we do preview is always blurry.
Example here: https://ibb.co/SRWvRNf
We tried with several different sizes of images (i.e. 1200x680px, .png format) which looks nice and clean and it looks good when published as image. But inside video preview it is blurry.
Is there some other size, resolution or format that we should use to make this optimal?
Also we would like to have this custom image to be applied automatically (on activity publish), instead of changing it for each item. Is this possible? (note: we already opened a different ticket for this – https://buddydev.com/support/forums/topic/changing-default-preview-image-for-videos-and-documents/
Thank you in advance! MediaPress is great plugin and we enjoy it, but this item is a core functionality for us (to have a custom placeholder which is clearly visible).
Hopefully this makes sense for you.

The size will depend on your current media size. can you please tell me your thumbnail and large size setting for the media?

I have checked my /wp-admin/options-media.php settings.
Thumbnail 150×150 (max sizes)
Medium size 300×300 (max sizes)
Large size 1024×1024 (max sizes)

Please check it in the MediaPress->settings under general tab.

The settings I have provided in previous post are from Settings – Media.
Here is what we have in MediaPress – Settings – Media Size Settings

I have managed to solve this issue by trying several different media settings.
One of them provided a look and feel that is good for us (not blurry and very nice).
We can consider this ticket closed.
Thank you for your help, idea with Media Settings was a trigger for a solution.
Great plugin, fantastic support.
