Hi, @RbDev.

Tried to search for an existing suggestion / feature request on the portal but could not find any. So, let us see if anyone can help us out on that.

Are we going to see movie thumbnails anytime?

Users cant tell what the video is without actually watching.

I’m quite surprised this hasn’t been implemented yet.


Come on guys. Lets make this real.

As soon as a video is uploaded, fire a service to generate the thumbnail and save it together with the video. When the user scrolls, load the thumbnail just as its done with pictures and when the user click on it, fire the movie preview control.

How to get first frame from a video:

ffmpeg -itsoffset -1 -i /pathto/hello.avi -vcodec mjpeg -vframes 1 -an -f rawvideo -s 200x150 /pathto/hello.jpg
