We need the possibility to manually choose a poster frame for videos, like we can in LR Classic. LR CC cannot even show a poster frame made in Classic when importing it from a catalog.

When I browse my videos in CC, many of them shows only a black thumbnail, that says nothing about the video content.

There is no way of choosing your frame asa a cover for a video.
Most of my videos are previewd as black thumbnails

Yes, I have the same problem. Lots of videos, all with black thumbnails. So importing videos is basically a useless feature for me at the moment, as I cannot properly see what videos are in my library.  :-(
