The thumbnail from the video is bad because PageImages didn't respect the |thumbtime parameter, which is correctly set in the page.

Note, T95026 would also achieve the suggested result (picking the logo).

(Mid-air collision... reopened with clearer scope.)

MaxSem is this even achievable easily? Could we update the description with clearer replication steps? When that's done I can safely assess the priority and make this actionable.

@Jdlrobson, get a backend developer on your team to take ownership of this extension?

closed this task as a duplicate of T87336: PageImages shouldn't return images that are not in the lead section.

The video is actually a plausible image to represent the article, so I don't think the proposed solution is a correct one for the specific case. It may be fine to decline this report though.

@MaxSem I'm purely asking for a gut check. We have backend engineers but it's going to take them a while to get up to speed on understanding this extension.

Right now I'm purely trying to understand what this bug means.

The bug report is about the suggested image, https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/3/37/Translating_the_wiki_way.webm/150px--Translating_the_wiki_way.webm.jpg , being very ugly (unreadable text over white). This could happen with any video placed in any point of the article, as the default thumbnail for a video is essentially random.

The article does not show that thumbnail, but a different one set via |thumbtime.
