The videolibrary demo is a good one to read and dissect. It does some
nifty stuff to make the thumbnails dynamically by seeking into the video
stream and pausing playback. You can make a "fileName.meta" file beside
the "fileName.flv" file on the server, that contains key:value pairs,
one on each line, which give extra information about the video,
including title, description and thumbnail time. (Can't remember the key
name off the top of my head for thumbnail time, but look in the video
thumbnail code.) That lets you specify the time in seconds into the
video to display as a thumbnail. Eventually that application should let
users who upload videos enter their own title, description and set the
thumbnail time, and the give the administrator an interface to delete
and edit videos that have been uploaded, but of course that would take
more programming and design to flesh out all the user account
authentication and gui stuff.
Please send me any questions you have, and copy them to openlaszlo-dev
since other people will probably like to hear the questions and answers
