Black item previews on VideoHive

Hi! I have just noticed that today some preview images can’t be viewed. Instead of them
we can see only black rectangles. Could you please solve this problem? Thank you!


Hi @BonaFidex! When I view that page, your video preview loads normally, but it fades in from black when it starts playing. What should the initial frame for that preview video show?


I really don’t understand your reply.
Are you wondering what should be displayed? It should display a “thumbnail” that best describes each author’s footage, not a black frame.

Yes, “selected” thumbnails should be displayed when we upload.
He would never have chosen a black frame for a “thumbnail” representing his video when uploading his portfolio.

I wrote a thread with the same content a few days ago.
in my case, video does not contain black frames.
Other authors who have responded to my thread will probably do the same.
A black frame is not a representative thumbnail of our video.

Thanks @shnfilm - I just wanted to confirm that the video previews uploaded for these items don’t start with a black frame, as that looked like the case when I first checked the results. On a closer look, I realise that it should default to showing the preview thumbnail in search results though, and only begin playing the video preview on mouseover.

(my apologies - I’m not too familiar with how the files are set up for VideoHive item pages)

I’ll raise this with our Market development team.

Graphicriver has the same problems, some previews were slid. They stuck not to the top of the image, but somewhere in the middle

Thanks @GorynArt - that looks like a separate issue, so I’ll report that one as well.

The VideoHive preview issue is currently being investigated, and looks like a caching problem on our end. I’ll update this thread once a fix has been deployed.

@BenLeong @KingDog Please attention!.

Thank you


All my projects except 2 show black instead of their thumbnails. Tested on 3 different browsers on 2 different computers. This is happening for at least 4 days.

This is the second time this has happened to me. And the second time drawdown in the number of sales. Now all the sales go to those who have a preview. :smile:


Same over here, I was thinking it was a problem just from my side, internet connection or something, but it looks like a problem within the site.

Hi all.

The bug that was causing this has now been resolved, with a fix that our Market engineers deployed around 10am this morning.

All VideoHive item previews are now showing the correct thumbnails again.


Thank you very much @BenLeong
