Hi Everyone,

I'm developing a service to Kodi where I need to generate manually a thumbnail from a Video that exists in the filesystem. I tried to do it with a command line command with ffmpeg but as I'm using openelec it seems that ffmpeg is not compiled with support to JPEG, PNG or even GIF.

Can you please tell me if it's possible to manually generate a thumbnail with any Kodi python method or eventually with any binary existent in Kodi though command line?

Thanks in advance.

Maybe I'm not using the right forum to make these kind of Kodi questions. I've made 3 questions and 0 answers. Can you please tell me where is the right place? Thanks in advance.
