Making video previews

Postby Rommeltje » Sat Dec 11, 2010 6:04 pm

When you post a link to a video, you need to add a preview so everyone can see whether they want to download it or not.

The easiest way to make a preview is to open your video file in Media Player Classic, which should be somewhere in the program files folder on your computer. If not, or if you want the latest version (which can play more video formats), you can download it here.

Once installed, just open a movie with it, and in the "file" menu click on "save thumbnails." Specify how many stills you want made and how big the resulting image should be, and you're done! Upload to Imgur and post it here together with your download link.

There are other programs to do it, such as Image Grabber, but Media Player Classic is by far the best.
