Netflix auto-plays a 20s, 30s video preview in the background if a video is selected or we hover the mouse pointer on them. I was trying to play with them, but couldn't understand how this preview "video production" is done.

Is there any information or insights how these previews are generated? Are they a random portion of the video, or what?

Alternatively, if you have a good suggestion of how to select a portion of video, please share.

  • I'm not sure, but most likely it is the trailer or a specificaly for Netflix edited Teaser – Timothy Lukas H. Jul 11 '19 at 15:12
  • I noticed sometimes they play the trailer, but sometimes just a portion of the movie. – Tina J Jul 11 '19 at 15:27
