mplayer to extract images from movies

Thanks to Silvan [1] who mentioned that feature of mplayer. Quite easy that way, to get certain images out of a movie. mplayer is available for several operating systems [2].

mplayer -frames 1 -vo jpeg outdir=/tmp:quality=75 path/to/

Who is going to make mplayer a PHP PECL extension? 😉


Update: Some nice tips by Ben Edgington [3] using mplayer, imagemagick, mplex etc.
