Description

As a potential viewer of a video, it would be great to get an overview of the entire video and not just the the first frame as a thumbnail. This can give me information to decide if I want to click play at all, if I want to watch it from the start or jump forward in the video immediately.

One tool to solve this is Timelens used by media.ccc.de and an example can be seen from the latest Wikidatacon here.

Primarily I want this on the filepage itself, but potentially it could also be shown on the timeline of the videoplayer.
