    I have taken several requests in or district for the ability to adjust the thumbnail size for media uploaded via the inline Canvas media tool. Most feel the default thumbnail is too small. The problem, of course, is the inability to alter the overall pixel size even through a simple edit of the html. The thumbnail (see attachment) is certainly smaller than any default social media application where thumbnails compete for clicks from the casual viewer. We are thinking the same also applies for complex media pages in Canvas. Feedback has also included the fact that the "play" icon in the middle of the thumbnail is so large that it essentially obscures most images beyond immediate recognition.

     

    Am I perhaps somehow overlooking a workaround on this?
