MS Access Get video thumbnail
Thank you for taking the time to read my question.
I've created a simple Access DB that scans folders for all image and video files. It helps me identify duplicates on my system.
In my main form I am able to display the similar pictures so that the user can see if in fact they are the same or not.
My problem is that when I find similar videos I need to open them and watch the first few seconds of each to see if they are the same.
It would be great if I could get a thumbnail of the video and display that in my form so I don't need to run each video. Is that possible?
There are various articles about a popular free tool that can be used for thumbnails: https://www.bing.com/search?q=ffmpeg+thumbnail.
Maybe it can be executed it in your Access application in hidden mode (probably using the Shell function) to build and cache a series of thumbnail images for video.
