How to create thumbnail of video file???
is there any library??

please help...


Usually it is the first video frame, or you create an image. I have never heard of a library to do.

But if you can extract the first video frame image then CI's image library should be able to create the thumb nail image for it.
What did you Try? What did you Get? What did you Expect?

Hey Pratik,

I don't know if this is the case, but if your video is a Youtube (or other service) video, you can use their api to get your thumbnails.


Grabbing frames from a local video file is tricky business because of all of the different codecs etc. I'm guessing you have to install and try ffmpeg to extract an thumbnail.

Hope this helps,
