Decide to put out this small step by step guide that might be useful for beginners.
This tutorial will show you,step by step how to configure the best player in the world (media player classic) and make thumbnails/screen shots.
First, you can get thestable version of media player classic from here.
Next step we will do is configuring Media Player Classic for being able to make thumbnails/screenshots.
Right click on the player and select view->options or simply press O
So in the options menu a few options you have to be changed in the Playback–>Output menu.
The default options won’t allow you to save thumbnails by giving an error.
Here are some settings that will render the video better and allow you to save images,hit OK after finishing.
Next, Media Player Classic needs to be restarted. Open the desired video File by right clicking in the player and selecting file-> quick open file.
Depending on what you want you can take 2 types of images :
A. Make thumbnails
Once the video starts right click again and select file-> save thumbnails.
I prefer having 3 or 4 thumbnails in row and column and a image width of 860 pixels if you wish to use these settings go ahead.
Save it in a place you want on your hard disk and let Media Player Classic make the thumbnails.
You now have a nice thumbnails pic.
