It seems there is not any option for adding a poster image to HTML5 video tag (typo3/sysext/core/Classes/Resource/Rendering/VideoTagRenderer.php). I've searched in the forge and there is many old closed requests about old video playing JS libraries , but after replacing the current HTML5 video player, Typo3 lacks video poster feature again.

The hard way to achieve this feature is to make automated posters that needs ffmpeg. But at least TYPO3 needs manual posters. There is some suggestions:
1) Use second media element of a content element as a poster. or with a checkbox.
2) The old way is adding a file by similar file-name as a video file-name in the same folder.
3) Adding a specific poster field for video media records and embed it in the code.

Kind Regards
