At work we’ve been using the wordTube and wordTube Flowplayer plugins to add video to our news. We had some old videos we wanted to include so I used FFmpeg to generate a splash image for each one. I applied the same command to all the videos which meant the images was taken from the same frame. This was a bit hit and miss, people with their eyes closed or fading captions isn’t what we wanted. For those videos we resorted to screen captures and Photoshop.
It would be nice to integrate this with wordTube so that instead of uploading an image or giving a URL you could generate one directly from the video. Perhaps I’ll have a go.
