In order to assign a thumbnail to an audio asset from within the MPX plugin version 2.0.0 (new as of May 2016), go into thePlatform > Video Manager, and locate your audio file.

1) Upload Audio files just as you have always done through the Plugin.

Media” (lower right)

4) Hit upload – if this is the first image file in the media object, it will become the default thumbnail.

Note: if you already have an image file assigned as the thumbnail, you will not be able to update it from the plugin. You will need to head to mpx.theplatform.com so you can delete the existing image file and upload a new one. However, the plugin will work great for audio files which just need a first-time thumbnail assignment.
