This tutorial will discuss both the methods
of creating a video preview using a thumbnailer
This offers several advantages over using individual single-pic
1) It is quicker
(you only have to make and upload one multi-scene pic)
2) A one multi-pic preview, puts less of a load
on the SqueezeQueens.com server CPU
3) Your video's technical information is displayed at the top of the preview
automatically (in most thumbnailers), meaning that you don't need to write information in the main body of your post such as:
a) File size in MB
b) Length of video in minutes and seconds (run-time)
c) Video format (.wmv .avi .flv .mp4)
d) Resolution (720p HD)
The links given, are safe and verified at the time of writing. However, as with all these applications:*You Download At Your Own Risk*
I currently use Video Thumbnails Maker by ScorpClick here to download it.
Here's a quick, step by step guide to basic thumbnail creation, once the app is installed on your computer.
Beware, some older versions of these various thumbnailers are not compatible with Windows 8. Scorp
(the one above) works fine.
Feel free to google
these various thumbnailer
applications, for user-reviews
, prior to downloading. Here are some download links:nb. *Stewart Gilligan Griffin hereby accepts no legal responsibility pertaining to any malware, or other issue arising from links to third-party downloads*.Scenegrabberhttp://www.videohelp.com/tools/Scenegrabber.NET
