  • Milestone changed from 0.2 to 0.3

Moved to 0.3 as proposed a few weeks ago. no more features are being added into 0.2 before a 'final' is released, only bug fixes.

some ideas on this...

you can use mplayer to extract thumbnails (as well as ffmpeg):

mplayer -vo jpeg -frames 1 -ss

 http://lists.mplayerhq.hu/pipermail/mencoder-users/2007-February/005331.html

then use GD to combine this frame thumbnail with the engagemedia logo (current flash splash image)?  http://www.codewalkers.com/c/a/Miscellaneous/Overlapping-Images-with-GD/1/

or use the playlist function that comes with Flowplayer to load the frame thumb, overlay and video:

this example has nice rollover play button we might want to look at also...

Also an excellent user enhancement, Andy says it's doable for this next release using the following how-to :)
