Video Thumbnail
« on: September 02, 2010, 11:08:00 pm »

I have read the documentation, and tried a couple of things from other similar threads, but I am unable to give a video in my gallery a custom thumbnail. The video is uploaded here: http://www.railways-in-miniature.co.uk/gallery/albums/later/Mine/0910/SDC18009.avi , and a thumbnail has been created and uploaded here: http://www.railways-in-miniature.co.uk/gallery/albums/later/Mine/0910/thumb_SDC18009.JPG .

I have tried removing and readding the video after uploading the thumbnail, renaming the video to have a lower case extension  (.avi rather than .AVI) and also updating thumbnails with the Admin tools, but I still get the standard video thumbnail in the gallery http://www.railways-in-miniature.co.uk/gallery/thumbnails.php?album=63 .

Is there something that I am missing, or is this no longer possible in 1.5.8? I presume it must be possible.

The thumbnail should have a lower case extension too.

Thankyou for that. It is interesting that that works, as all the other image thumbnails have upper case extensions,.

For an image we know that a thumbnail exists. For other file types we just guess that there could be a thumbnail and check for (lower case) jpg, png, and gif files with the same base name.

Btw: there's a plugin that helps you to create custom thumbnails.

Thanks for pointing me to that Plugin, It will certainly come in handy next time I upload a video.
