thumbnails for videos

14 posts in this topic

hello world

i am trying to create thumbnails for videos - i have been using a third party command line tool called mtn (http://moviethumbnail.sourceforge.net/) which works great but i have to FileAdd a bunch of files which makes the exe pretty huge.  i basically want to create one frame thumb for each video file.

any guidance is greatly appreciated!

Check the tools written by wakillon. I do not know if he has written something for videos but it might be worth to check.

looks like he uses ffmpeg.. another command line tool but its 35MB just the exe alone!

lol

i was also looking at kafu's tool

looks like using 3rd party tools might be the only way to go?

wow looks promising!!

seems incomplete though.  there are references to PluginOpen PluginClose functions and I dont see them on the example.au3 provided (the only au3 file on there) would you happen additional files? 

error: PluginOpen(): undefined function.
$phandle = PluginOpen("AU3_FrameGrabber.dll")

No, I was looking for a Autoit nativ version if possible.

 

Maybe a codec is missing.

K-lite Codec Pack Mega is a good codec pack.

so if i gave anyone the tool they'd have to install codecs too.. booo (kinda defeats the purpose)

might have to go with a third part afterall :shifty:

The DLL uses the built-in codecs. If your system doesn't support the codec then you have to install the codec to use it somehow with system integrated tools.

Or use tools which have already built-in codecs such as KMPlayer.

movie thumbnailer (mtn) -- saves thumbnails (screenshots) of movie or video files to jpeg files. it uses libavcodec as its engine, so all popular codecs, eg. divx h264 mpeg1 mpeg2 mp4 vc1 wmv xvid, and formats, eg. .3gp .avi .dat .mkv .wmv are supported.

 Well, if your 3rd party tool isn't supporting a video which is not encoded with one of the popular codecs than you will have the same problem.
