Video thumbnails - auto generation


Is it possible to have a thumbnail automatically generated when a member uploads a video?


Yes it is possible. That can be done using ffmpeg. Although it wouldn’t convert the thumbnails automatically as they would need to be hooked with rtMedia uploads. We already have an add on for this - “rtMedia FFMPEG”, which works on the open source Media Node server developed by us, which does the job of handling the encoding queues and executing the commands on the terminal(Using NodeJS, one of the fastest and lightweight server).
