One of the few programs I've found so far that handles mp4 files (ImageGrabber II does not).
I somehow managed to get it working, a couple of times, months ago, and then I came back to it, tonight, after a long while.
Sadly, I've had nothing but bad news and problems.
1. It says it cannot write to the Temp folder I designated, so I must choose a different one. I've been thru 3 cycles of trying to fix that, and can get a one-time fix, but it's the same problem all over again, the next time I boot the program.
1.5 It is just LOVELY to see that the ONLY way to try to fix that problem is to completely uninstall the entire program, and then reinstall it. Can I please ask: who thought up THAT system?
2. I have done everything possible to get an array of 12 to 15 decent-sized pics. For example, I have deleted every other layout option, leaving only one possible line, with the array I want. But, those efforts makes no difference at all. I always get arrays with about 60 sub-miniature thumbs that are WAAYY too small for what I want.
3. You guys need a simple basic wizard, in your software, to walk people thru the major steps, and to give them some sort of reasonable & realistic chance of actually getting what they want.

I've just download this tool today. I had about 50 porn short videos (my latest), and I wanted to make thumbnails. Lately, I've done this one by one with Media Player Classic - Home Cinema. I previously used Image Grabber II.NET which is good, but doesn't work on Windows 7 64 bit, neither on a Virtual Windows XP. I've tried other tools about 2 years ago, but i didn't like neither of them in particular... Since this is a new one, I've just installed on my Virtual Windows XP to try. I had MP4, MKV, AVI and WMV, with assorted codecs. I had 100% good thumbnails make. Just Perfect.

To increase speed I chose 6 screen captures for each video. In the "Layout" tab, "Thumbnail Patterns", I just deleted everything except the row where it says "Else", there I enter 6 for "Number of thumbnails", and 3 for "Per Row". Obviously you can choose also the size of the thumbnails. I disable both "Show Preview" and "Enable Log Display" to increase speed (I think!) There's a button "Customize Info Header Labels" where you choose the information you want to display in the images. I didn't make any changes on the "Settings" tab.

It doesn't work for me at all. I tried with different HD video files, and after several minutes of doing 'something' the tool generated no thumbnails.

It is working very well, even can help me to check the integrity of the video file.

But it is not working if your filename has unicode names like Japanese character, it cannot write the thumbnail file at the final stage.

Many options which new users may not understand but with defaults it works out of the bag as expected and no additional thumbnail unlike others.

Current installer is clean.
