quick script for generating tbn files in linux - Killarny - 2009-07-22 04:44
I haven't contributed to the community in about 5 years, and this isn't much of a contribution, but I figure I'll stick it up here in case it's useful to anyone
This is a simple python script that will use ffmpeg to generate JPEG thumbnails from every video in the folder you specify, saving the thumbs as tbn files.
After writing this script, I found webmosher's thumber program, which looks really nice (although I haven't tried it yet). I recommend you check out his/her program too.
