When one uses

\movie[]{ \includegraphics[]{} }{}

to set an image as the placeholder before a video begins in a slide, is there a way to set a different image that appears after the video plays?

I am using Ubuntu and have found that Okular is the only viewer that allows me to play video embedded by beamer. It reverts to my original placeholder once the video completes.

I would really like it to hold the final view from the video if possible, because ultimately that is what I want anyway. However, I have access to the final image since I am making the videos myself from a series of images so a solution that throws up an image right after the video plays is also fine.
