How can I get thumbnails from first frame of each video in a set of videos? I am using Windows.


The command to get a thumbnail from the first frame of a video is

ffmpeg -i test.mp4 -vframes 1 -vf "scale=360:-1" small_thumnail.png

The scale filter is set to resize the image to 360 px width and choose height so that image proportion is maintained.
