How to create, for a video, a picture with a gallery of small screenshots ?


Hello there

I'd like to find a Linux program able to make what the windows program "media player classic" handles nicely, that is, creating, for a video, a picture with a gallery of small screenshots ?

I don't know if you're familiar with this and I don't think I know the right technical words, so I give a small description.
In the media player classic, the program will, if you ask it, take a serie of screenshots, resize them to smaller dimensions, and create a picture with all of the screenshots next to each other. You can chose the width and height of the final picture and say how many lines and rows of screenshots it will contain.

That is dead useful for allowing people to have a fast idea of what a video contains !

Please, would you know if there are equivalents to this in the linux world ? I'm afraid none of my searches brought no result

Thanks in advance if you can help me

Media Player Classic is available under the GPL.

http://sourceforge.net/projects/guliverkli/
... however, it don't go under wine.

I don't know what the function would be called either. However, I havn't been able to find mention of any such feature in MPC either.

This sounds like an on-the-fly version of the "scene selections" menu in a DVD. Though I would be surprised if it were all that fast.

If you want to know how to make that with MPC, ask it and I'll do a reboot to tell you

This is not similar to the menus of DVDs, I think, though. If you ask 4 rows and 4 lines, and if your video lasts 16 minutesn the program will take a screenshot every minute exactly. Ask 8x4, it will take a screenshot every 30 seconds...

I really hope somebody's going to tell us there is a nux equivalent

Well... what does MPC call it (what menu entry do you have to click?)
Are there any other (windows? Mac?) players doing this?

So far, you are the only one raving about it.

That is called "save thumbnails".

I finally found how to do it, a script using mplayer and imagemacick, BUT it is a very long explanation and it has been posted in the forum of an adult site that requires registration, you guys are warned :

Edit : I found a direct link to a non-adult page without any registration required, that is an even better program :

Thanks Sabinou finally I am able to make screenshots of my movies for online posting without needing to install MS Windows again. I had been searching for something like this for a week now.

Thanks again
