Thumbnails for non-canvas and non-youtube videos

We are linking to videos on dropbox to minimize Canvas file storage.  Is there way to add a thumbnail to a video link to a cloud storage location such as Dropbox?

Hey @davidcarterphd!   It may be a few extra steps, but I might try to take a screen shot of the frame in the video that you want to use for the thumbnail.  Then post that image in the RCE and link it to the video.  You are basically manually making your thumbnail this way, but it would give you the opportunity to have a thumbnail if you can not figure out another way of creating it automatically. I know this would be difficult for many videos, but I thought I would share this as an option.
