You're php guru, you should now
Maybe read the contents of the page and use regular expressions to parse it.Saul

It's not just a simple matter of "getting the thumbnail"
They get the thumbnail while they are encoding the video.
Something like http://www.on2.com/products/flix/engine/
That software though, is expensive... like $3000+/year ... I just got done setting up a site to use it (www.airshowbuzz.com ... and dont look at me if you look at the source, i just built the video module, the whole site is built badly code-wise...)
Basically, its a linux CLI program along with a php library for it...you just run it from php giving it the source file (mpg,avi,flv ... etc) and it converts them to FLVs, and if you specify, it creates thumbnails.
I have yet to see any other server-side setup that does a decent job at all, so you don't have many options...Developer
