It is important for developers to test each platform separately to know which design works best for which platform. Each store needs a unique app store strategy.
Different parts of the app store page should get a different orientation. For instance when a visitor shifts from name section of the app to the screenshots of your app, the next section should give it an extra focus. You can either showcase them in portrait or landscape orientation.
If you want to convey a single yet important message in a single frame, then go for landscape orientation. However, with portrait it is possible for you to display multiple messages in a single frame. There are very less apps that support horizontal use. Such apps can choose to for landscape orientation.
Each of the orientations has its unique merits and demerits. The orientation which you choose for your screenshot gallery highly depends on the overall design and functionality of your app.

The poster frame should be carefully selected and should have elements of creativity to showcase the best of your app. While creating the video, ensure that all the frames you select have something important to convey to the viewer. This way if the poster frame or thumbnail is auto-selected then it gets ensured that it showcases highly important information.
Make the most of the app store page while uploading screenshots in gallery. Utilize all the allocated space for screenshots by uploading as many screenshots as allowed by App Store or Google Play.
