Dynamically pulling thumbnail from Video URL

Hi team,

I am trying to resolve an issue in a multitude of ways. In short summary, only on ios devices, or smaller devices, does my HTML video player auto-play all videos in view, which is an INCREDIBLE nuisance…

Here are some possible solutions:

  1. Stop auto-play of all html video elements on an IOS device only.
  2. Stop auto-play on devices of a certain size
  3. Dynamically pull and display a thumbnail image of the video. Currently trying to figure out a way to pull the thumbnail using this from Codepen: https://codepen.io/renanpupin/pen/PqjyeK, but the Javascript doesn’t seem to translate well here.

I do not have a solution for this at the moment, but would love some help or support? I see no plugins available for this particular use-case
