    Hello,

    I have created a plugin which allows registered users to upload video in their created channel and which is added to post programmatically.

    I would like to know is there filter or hook or function through which I can create thumbnail if video path os provided? So that I can attach the thumbnail to the post.

    Thanks,

    Yes, if you have FFMPEG installed on your server the plugin will automatically generate a thumbnail and attach it to the post. Without FFMPEG there’s no way to do it automatically.

    If I upload video from wordpress admin having your plugin installed. Then also FFMPEG required to generate thumbnail?

    My plugin relies on FFMPEG to generate automatic thumbnails without user input. I developed a system to generate thumbnails using the browser’s built-in video decoding capabilities with user input, but there is currently no system to make in-browser thumbnails programatically.
