    How do you make a thumbnail...

    How do you make a thumbnail image from a video file?

    I see on youtube (and other places) that you see a thumbnail image of the video to be played, and you select the image and i guess it links to the video file, correct?

    How do you create a thumbnail image from the first thing you see on the video file?

    Thanks.

    What works for me is to have the video open in a browser and when it loads on the image on you want, hit 'PRINTSCREEN', that takes a snapshot of the whole page. Paste that image into a graphics software program and cut/edit to the size you want for your thumbnail.

    Exactly. If you're using firefox, there is a free plugin named screengrab that is to help capturing screenshots.
