Hi Given I have a WebVTT file with the timecodes/image URLs what is the best approach to implement trick play thumbnails?

Regards

ah! parse the vtt yourself (regex!), display the tiles at the respective time intervals assuming all the info is in the vtt file.
Different types of implementations sample here: https://github.com/rokudev/samples/tree/master/certification/trickplay-samples-master

Thanks for the response

Can you confirm that Roku will accept a single thumbnail tile displayed when using Trick Play?

All the examples I have currently seen have multiple thumbnails.

You can contact partnersuccess to know if they accept the same. But I dont see any requirement stating it should not be a single image.
