Video thumbnail creator
« on: April 06, 2020, 08:22:38 pm »

This plugin allows you to set the thumbnail for a video from the video itself. When on the intermediate page for the video (only admin users), there will be a button to create a thumbnail from the video's current frame. So you can position the video where you want, hit the button and the thumbnail will be set. It will require a modern web browser and will (currently) only work with videos handled by the CPG HTMLV player.

Note: if you have already created custom thumbnails for the videos that are .png files, it will be necessary to remove the .png files.

Updated: 11 May 2020, v0.9
Will now work with the Flash Media Player. This video thumbnail creator plugin must be listed AFTER the media player plugin in the Plugin Manager.

A fine bit of work. Something positive comes out of all the lockdown time.

It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems just with potatoes.

It doesn't work for me. I've deleted the .png file and when I try to generate the thumb, i've got the follow message "FAILED: could not parse image data".  :(

I'm using Windows, with Xampp server. I've tried with Firefox 75.0 and Google Chrome 80.0.

The failure is indicating that the image info the browser is sending to CPG does not match what is expected to be received. Sorry, I have no way to match your setup to explore possible issues.

I had no problem with creating a thumbnail for your other two videos using the button. So perhaps your issue may have been associated with your browser.
After creating the thumbs, I changed these things on your site to provide you with better overall results:
Used the Filetypes Editor to change MP4 files to identify as video/mp4 (mime) and HTML5 Video Tag (player).
Uninstalled the JWPlayer plugin.

Thanks so much for the help. Things seem to run more smoothly now
