iPad Challenge - How to show thumbnail rather than Movie Icon during buffering

I have a client who wants to run  a db on FileMaker Go on the latest iPad, and be able to play short videos as part of the db. It must be able to be viewed offline hence all vids are stored in containers internally.

Original database created in FileMaker 16 and saved a single copy, then uploaded to the iPad via iCloud.

Once we navigate to the page containing the vid all we see is the movie icon even when it's set to autoplay.

Even if vids are small (eg 10mgb) the icon remains there whilst it is loading (buffering). This does not look good :-(


I've trawled the net and this forum and can't yet find a solution.

All responses very gratefully received
