video thumbnails
Is it possible to change the thumbnails of video files. (AVI) It looks like
by default the thumbnail thaty is displayed is the first frame of the video.
Is there any type of change where you can possibly say to display frame xxxx
as the thumbnail. any suggestions would be appreciated.

Re: video thumbnails
I've never seen anything like that. Seems like an unlikely feature. But,
what do I know?

Re: video thumbnails
You can replace the thumbnail with any image of your choice, by
using a JPG file.

For each video file simply give it a corresponding JPG with the same
filename.

e.g.

Video1.avi & Video1.jpg
Movie2.avi & Movie2.jpg

This JPG could be some movie artwork taken from the web, a frame
drom the movie that you grab yourself, or perhaps just a family pic
from your digital camera for those home movies.
