Dynamically extract frames from videos by time or percentage. Includes basic blank frame avoidance. Based on ffmpeg.
- Add ImageResizer.Plugins.FFmpeg.dll to your project using Visual Studio.
<add name="FFmpeg" downloadNativeDependencies="true" />inside
ImageResizer.Configuration.Config.Current.Plugins.LoadPlugins()to ensure that ffmpeg is downloaded before the application starts accepting requests.
ffmpeg.seconds=45.3- Will grab the frame 45.3 seconds into the video file. Fastest way to grab an image.
ffmpeg.percent=50.1- Will grab the frame 50.1 percent through the video file (slower, as the videos length must be queried)
ffmpeg.skipblankframes=true- Even slower - if the acquired frame is blank, another frame 5 seconds later will be chosen, and so on, up to 4 times.
This plugin (FFmpeg Plugin) is part of the Elite Edition
