Just doing some reading and came up with a few questions i am hoping someone can answer.
1) Is the video player ffmpeg?
2) If the video player is ffmpeg does Kodi have a built in way to send it command from python?
3) If kodi does not have a builtin what to communicate with it, can someone point me to the location of so that I can write script to sent it command?

Point of all of this i am looking for a way use python and the ffmpeg player to make thumbnails, if anyone already know how to do this may you advise me? It would be really helpful with a few ideas I have.

Thank you for any help.
