Any way to still show thumbnails for restricted videos?

This may be a feature request, but I would like to have the ability to still show a video thumbnail even if the video is restricted. I assume this can’t be done right now. When I restrict a video, and try to load the player using the public URL, it doesn’t work at all. It would be great if there was an option to still be able to display the thumbnail as the player poster.

What would be some good workarounds? One idea was using Cloudflare Images and Cloudflare KV to associate the image with a certain video.

If you are referring to signed URLs - the documentation notes that

If signed URLs are required, you must use a signed URL instead of video IDs.

This works for us just fine.

I do not want to provide a signed URL until the user authenticates, but I still want them to be able to see a thumbnail before they authenticate. I suppose I could try providing a signed URL that expires in 1 second, or just long enough such that the thumbnail can load but no video can be watched.
