Big Thumbnail can be helpful to attract More visitors.
Please change the style of sharing videos poster as YouTube video sharing works.

Not sure what you need from me technically. If you have a specific change to do please request, else I don't know how Facebook makes that design choice in their platform.

Dear sir
after i searched for this i found fb sharing debugger tool at

https://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug/

and while checking vibe video url using debugger i got following error

Warnings That Should Be Fixed

Inferred Property
The provided 'og:image' properties are not yet available because new images are processed asynchronously. To ensure shares of new URLs include an image, specify the dimensions using 'og:image:width' and 'og:image:height' tags. Learn More.
.

and to solve the issue fb provided following links with information

https://developers.facebook.com/docs/sharing/webmasters/
https://developers.facebook.com/docs/sharing/best-practices/#precaching

Please check if this can help...Thankyou

I guess you could add these two tags to /themes/main/tpl.header.php but I won't be doing it, because getting the filesize of that image on every video page...not a good optimization technique.
You could use https://www.php.net/manual/en/function.getimagesize.php for image dimensions and code them in the theme file.

Quote<meta property="og:image" content="'.thumb_fix($video->thumb).'" />
<meta property="og:image:width content="what the documentation said as format" />
<meta property="og:image:height content="what the documentation said as format" />

Thank you for Help Sir
As per your advice i did'nt add meta height and width but i did few changes like 777 permission for storage/thumbs folder

then i found Following Error

Provided og:image URL, https://i.ytimg.com/vi/T0Jqdjbed40/mqdefault.jpg was not valid because it did not meet the minimum size constraint of 200px by 200px.
The mqdefault thumbnail size is small 320x180 and required is minimum 200x200

May i know where i can edit the thumbnail size bigger than 320x180


Thank you

That's a YouTube thumbnail.

See
Quoteclass.youtube.php
in /app/classes/

Quoteif(!isset($video["thumbnail"]) || nullval($video["thumbnail"])) {
$video["thumbnail"] = "https://i4.ytimg.com/vi/" . $video['videoid'] . "/hqdefault.jpg";
if(!validateRemote($video["thumbnail"])){
$video["thumbnail"] = "https://i4.ytimg.com/vi/" . $video['videoid'] . "/default.jpg";   
}

Just keep in mind not all Youtube videos have big quality thumbnails.
