How can I request a thumbnail via API?

If you wish to request thumbnails via API, you've got a couple options:

1) You can request the thumbnail via timestamp (in seconds or percentage rate)

2) Want to request thumbnails at specific intervals? Use !5, for example, to request thumbnails at 5 second intervals

Please note:

– If your specified thumbnail width and height are different from your video's aspect ratio, you may get black spaces added to the thumbnail image. 
– If you specify only width or height, the other will be calculated according to your video size.
– If both width and height are not specified, the thumbnail will result in the same size as your video. 
– JPEG is the only supported image format for thumbnail images.
