Most other email clients have a function that allows you to autogenerate a thumbnail (with a play button on top of it), which then links to the video. This function is NOT embedding the video, but saves the trouble of screencapping, adding the play button yourself, etc. Is this not an option in Marketo? It seems like such a basic function, but I can't find any options for it anywhere.
This isn't an option currently. But, there is some good news...I'm working on adding this feature as we speak. Will roll out with a bunch of other changes in a few months.
I should also note that we do already have this feature in Landing Pages for YouTube videos. It's the email functionality that we'll be adding.
In the meantime, check out some websites like this:
It looks like the video module is available now in email, although, I think there is a bug. When I add the video the play button shows up over the video image , however if I'm working in the email for awhile, the video play button seems to disappear.
Not sure if anyone else has experienced this?
