IDEA: Customizable Video Thumbnails
« on: May 11, 2006, 11:24:03 AM »
Hi guys.

Windows displays the first frame of a video as that file's thumbnail.  I reckon 9 times outta 10 it's just a plain old black frame.  This kinda defeats the purpose of the functionality.

ACDSee displays 4 frames in 1 thumbnail.  This gives a much better representation of the video's content but sacrifices size.

Since the thumbnails are stored in a database file, wouldn't it be possible to manually allocate the frame to be used as the file's thumbnail?

Thanx for looking.
