Video for Email Marketing – Blip.tv and Hulu Added

Another step forward for bloggers, email marketers and new media companies using embedded video – FeedBlitz has extended its video capabilities to include videos embedded in blog posts from Blip.tv and Hulu. Since email programs don’t run embedded video players, FeedBlitz converts these players into a thumbnail image taken from the video, and links back to the movie with a single click. Plus we have updated our YouTube integration, so now it produces thumbnails even when you don’t use the standard YouTube embedding code.

Result? Emails with embedded video are richer, better rendered and more functional. And that translates directly into more click-throughs, more video views, and much less hassle for everyone.

Thats great! Is it possible to have an overlay image on the snapshot to indicate that its a video, for example a transparent play button over the thumbnail?
