How do I create screenshot previews of videos?

I am looking for some software for Ubuntu that can make every x Minutes a screenshot from a video (avi, wmv, mpg...) and create a big preview picture from that. Like the option in media player classic.

Thanks to both of you. Neither of the suggestions worked but they gave me the right leads and I have now solved the problem.

1) Use videocut (GUI-only), or
2) Use SlickSlice (CLI-only).

1) sudo apt-get install videocut, or
2) Go to
2.1) Download ImageMagick and extract
2.2) ./configure
2.3) make
2.4) sudo make install
2.5) if it complain about perl, then write "sudo ln -s" and goto 2.2
2.6) sudo apt-get install mplayer
2.7) Download SlickSlice
2.8) chmod +x slickslice*
