Is it possible to change the thumbnails on Brightcove videos?

We are utilizing the Khoros/Brightcove video integration, and we have some business users that really want to change the thumbnails on their videos.  

This is possible within Brightcove itself, but I haven't been able to find out how to do it in Khoros.  Has anyone cracked this egg?

@jeffshurtliff, we can do it with the Brightcove player javascript API and an example snippet to start the video at 15 seconds would look like

var myvid = videojs.getPlayer("vjs_video_3")

and to change the thumbnail, you'd use the poster() method. However, it has to be set every time the player loads.
