I'd like to tag the interviewee in this video, but I have no option to associate him: http://www.imdb.com/video/imdb/vi2425861145/

I'd like a thumbnail/icon that is not black for this video, but the only options I have a frames of black:

Please advise. Thank you.

E: I am giving you a "me too" vote on this thread, because there used to be a way to submit names to videos that didn't already have any names associated, but it's not available now. Hopefully the IMDb staff will advise on this.

(I don't know what to do about the thumbnail/icon for your other video, either.)

Thanks for the problem report.  We have opened a ticket with the appropriate team to fix this. 

However, in the meantime there is a fairly easy workaround ... all you need to do in this case is to open a browser at the following URL:

http://www.imdb.com/video/correction/select-names?vi=vi2425861145

or generically for a video ID of videoID the link is:

http://www.imdb.com/video/correction/select-names?vi=videoID

Unfortunately we cannot assist with the slate images other than to recommend ensuring there are sufficient non-black frames in the video, perhaps upload a longer edit or insert a non-black title card?

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Related names on what videos?.

Hi, I've discovered that though not always perfect in doing so, I've found that related names only come up automatically on trailers. They don't come up at all on other video types. Is this standard practice? If not, how do I do it because I've probably got close to a hundred videos or more that are just clips that need to be updated. Thanks.

Thank you, Col. Any chance of being able to upload custom stills/thumbnails in the future?
