Yes, all you have to do is replace the correct file in the 'images' directory, i.e. thumb_avi.jpg, thumb_mov.jpg, thumb_mpg.jpg, thumb_mpeg.jpg, thumb_wmv.jpg etc.

No, that will replace the default document thumbnails.  You shouldn't monkey around with those images.  Instead, you should read the documentation if you want to have a thumbnail that looks like your movie/document.

I believe you misunderstood me. I know that replacing files in the coppermine/image/ directory won't give you any thumbnails that look like your movie.

That wasn't what I thought cooluserguy wanted to do, I guess I misinterpreted the question. I thought he wanted to do a system-wide replacement of the thumbnail(s) used for video(s) (I did just that recently so maybe I had it fresh in mind), so I answered appropriately. The FAQ even says where the global thumbnails are located. Sure, I should've answered with a link to the FAQ instead, or asked exactly what he wanted to do, but hey - I'm just trying to help.
