I need a thumbnail image of a video which i upload as an asset. Instead of uploading an image manually I'd prefer craft to generate a thumbnail for me.
Is there a plugin I didn't find or did someone find another workaround?
Not that I know of or can find, Marco.
It'd be interesting to see if anyone else knows of one. I guess one challenge would be to define which frame of the video should be used as a thumbnail.
I typically use YouTube or Vimeo for client videos - as you know, the 'cover images' are available for use, from both.
That said, often times, the client prefers to upload an image as they have more control and better quality images.
There is a plugin called 'Transcoder' But it's not free: https://github.com/nystudio107/craft-transcoder/blob/v1/README.md
