Mr. Video,

I've successfully used the code on this page to add video to my site:


However, I cannot figure out how to get an image preview to show up on the player. I've tried adding an image="http://imagelocation.jpg" to the tag, but that doesn't seem to work. Here's the page I'm using for testing.


Basically I'd like to use the image below the player to show up as a preview instead of a black screen. Thanks for your help.
