    Can the video handler be made to generate thumbnails automatically from locally hosted media?

    That would be lovely. But right now, it does not.
    On the same topic, it seems to prefer .mp4 files over .mov files.

    I only get the URL when I upload a .mov file.
    Is it the same behaviour for you too ?

    I havent tested a .mov file. Not sure that I have one around.
    Is there a list of what it can handle?

  4. I suspect you have to define poster="http://example.com/mymedia.png"

    So:

    [video mp4="http://example.com/myvideo.mp4" poster="http://example.com/mymedia.png"][/video]
