Want to make Thumbnails for video?

Want to make Thumbnails for video?

In growing popularity of distributing video through the Internet, it becomes more and more popular to publish video on personal web pages.

At that many problems often occur ? which format to use - video or codec; how to add video to html page etc.

Moreover, sometimes it needs to make Thumbnails for video, so that it could be possible to demonstrate video if it isn?t loaded.

How to create Thumbnails for video in a better way?

Of course, there are many programs, including free ones for that purpose. Another simple way is to make screenshot with Print Screen (if only Windows Media Player isn?t used), Copy Paste it to Paint ? and that?s all!

And what if you need to make more then 1 Thumbnail? How to do that simply and quickly?

For that I use VideoCharge. It isn?t Free, but for such tasks I think is the best program for today!

1. It helps to specify frames and make Thumbnails, using them.
2. It enables to make any number of Thumbnails automatically, i.e. - for example you need to process 100 files, VideoCharge will process them and create Thumbnails for every one, using first or specified frame.
3. Enables to extract frames from video and make graphical files from them ? that is for those who wants to make image gallery from video.
4. Has FTP that uploads files to server.
5. Has flexible adjustment for names of produced files. It?s very handy to put files in folders and name them.

And these are only few features helping me to live, but there are a lot of useful ones there!
Hope it will help somebody!

Re: Want to make Thumbnails for video?

Thanks for the great info and tutorial mate. Thats really gonna help many. VideoCharge is indeed a nice software for creating video thumnails but i had also used FFmpeg and found it great too. FFmpeg is a free project recording and video conversion. It has a library named php-ffmpeg php, which allows access to meta-data video files to facilitate treatment or generate captures images from video (to thumbnails for example).
