there are loads of ways to do this, but I've used mplayer fine in the past, something like:

mplayer video.avi -ao null -vo png

that would dump the frames to png files.

Do you have to tell it what video to use? Erm... yes.

I don't know if you can specify the location of the output (see manpage for usage), so if not, just run it in the directory you want them to be written to.
