The poster image link allows you to easily access the currently shown poster image for a specific stream. The poster image is displayed in the video player as a preview of the video content before playback starts.
Replace <Stream_ID> with the unique identifier of your stream.
To use the poster image link, simply embed it as the src attribute of an element in your HTML or use it as a background image in your CSS.
<img src="https://streams.bitmovin.com/<Stream_ID>/poster" alt="Video poster">
No poster URL
If the stream doesn't have a poster URL associated with it, the link will return a 404 Not Found HTTP status code. To handle this, you can provide a fallback image or display an alternative text.
