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've tried to change the server from Xampp to Wampp and it works! Thank you.
