6 The options should be fairly explanatory but it is worth explaining the thumbnail option.

Unlike youtube the UChoose video player does not display the first or last frame as an image when the video isn't playing.

You can upload an image to replace the otherwise blank screen by clicking 'Add Thumbnail' and selecting your image.

If you intend to provide a video transcript you do this on the 'Transcript' tab but ensure you check the 'Display Transcript' option as well.
