The option to pick the video thumbnail when scheduling videos

Now that we have the automatic video upload it stops the option to pick the video's thumbnail when uploading this is throwing my grid off. I want to be able to pick the videos thumbnail before it is automatically uploaded

    This feature is available on the desktop version, however the scheduling app does have this feature for a variety of video sizes including 1080 x 1080 on the feed. I'm unable to select a thumbnail.

    I'd also like to be able to pick the thumbnail when scheduling multi-photo posts!

    Please Add an Option to UPLOAD your CUSTOM THUMBNAIL or at least enter the timecode of frame that you want it to pick. I just pay for the subscription to realize that your solutions is useless and bad implemented, sorry for that but is very frustrating.I got a video that has transitions to black from shot to shot and your solution only jump from black to black :(

    I have to make sure I select all of my videos to 'notify' instead of auto publish for this exact reason. Such a hassle!

    Yes, please! I love the new auto-scheduling ability for videos, but a number of ours have gone up with simply awful frames as the image that shows on our feed. I'd love to be able to set the image frame, like I can in the native Instagram app.

    When you select a video thumbnail, instagram will automatically take that frame as an image and place it as a half second still image at the beginning of your video. This feature would be great to have on later. Our teams fix is to simply make our 60s videos with the half second selected still image already placed at the beginning of the video. Allows the video to be published and keep our Instagram page looking great!

    I was just about to write the same things as Zoe above. I just posted a video and it is a blank image displayed on Instagram which is not great. There does not currently seem to be a way to select a thumbnail image.
