If one knows certain tricks one can enter most any file type. Yet before i use this again i have to see if an Adaware Trojan report is a false positive. Was hoping to add an attachment/capture of the report but i see there is no attachments within comments.
REPORT READ:

LEVEL: High

NAME: VirTool.Win32.Obfuscator.hg!b1 (v)

CATEGORY: Trojan

DESCRIPTION: Trojan...malicious....harmful functionality or behavior.

TRACES: C:\Documents and Settings\(removed my folder name here)\Local Settings\Temp\Temporary Directory 1 for VideoThumbnailsMaker_setup5001.zip\VideoThumbnailsMaker_setup.exe


Now i installed the previous version and was not showing a Trojan. Then after a windows security update the previous version & 5001 5 times presented this Quarantined status.

If its a false positive, please remove the negative portion of this comment and just leave 1 of 3 ways to use many video types in this software. One is to change 4 types of video extensions to ".avi"(DON'T CHANGE CONTAINER JUST RENAME EXT), then it accepts those 4 types of video types, later on 2 other clues as to using this software.

Easy and intuitive to use. Worked almost perfectly for me, batch-converting hundreds of mp4/avi/wmv files to thumbs.

A very small number of MP4 files in that batch however would cause the program to choke (with the progress bar not moving for 10-15 minutes) and then not respond to a Stop click, requiring Task Manager to kill the process.

VTM is excellent for me!

Functionality - 10/10
Value for money - 10/10
Overall score - 10/10

Nymphomaniac, Thedanny,
VTM is not supplied with its own codecs. It uses your codecs.
If you have any problems with mkv h.264 - read FAQ in 3.0.0.4 (a link can be found in the top right corner of the application). Just follow the instructions.

lovelove,
VTM requires .NET 2.0 Framework (3.5/4.0 does not include 2.0).

Not cool.

Kleines, aber sehr hilfreiches Programm! Es funktioniert intuitiv und einfach, Datei(en) oder Folder auswählen, Start drücken und schon sehe ich das Ergebnis! Genial!

Vorteile:
- Überschaubare Steuerung
- Schnelle Bearbeitung von Aufgaben

Design des Programms ist aber ein bisschen gewöhnungsbedürftig.

A worthy replacement for all the programs i have used before, with a good range of options and flexibility, a clean interface, and a nice output. It handles a good range of video formats as well. There are extra customisations if you choose to donate.

If you need a quick, powerful, video thumbnail generator, this is a great option.

I'd love to use it, but when I added a folder with 5 mov files and pressed "Start" all I got was "0 Done, 5 Fails". Kind of a turn-off. Nothing had been changed from the default settings.

I've been using Video Thumbnails Maker for a couple of days now, and I'm pleased with it.
This tool is exactly what i was looking for.

It's a nice, neat little program that has so far performed well in demo mode so I'm happy to activate & upgrade to the platinum/extreme version.

Thanks for creating such a great program!

Really easy to use and fast tool, no additional codec installation required as it used the operating system codecs. I am running Windows 7 64-bit and Windows Server 2008 R2 64-bit and this tool works like a charm in both the free and paid version. It's really worth the money!

This is a great tool, I have used several versions before updating to 3.0.0.1 yesterday.
After registration the extreme engine is available and let me tell you, I thought it was fast before. Now it really smokes. This version also seems to have fixed the problem of failed .wmv
files that the older versions had.

I post quite a bit on usenet and used to create thumbnails with Media Player Classic, one at a time. What a pain!
With VTM, I can put all the videos in 1 directory and select add folder in VTM's menu.
Then just click start and all the vids are processed...all in a couple clicks. What a time saver!!

I admit this is the first time I registered the program, but I now regret that decision.
The removal of the random logo frame and the speed of the extreme engine are more than worth the small cost for a tool I use so much. The author has come up with a great program, why not reimberse him for his efforts.

I was looking for this kinda tool for while. I read about it on some forum I really don't remember which one but there was a discussion about making thumbnails from WMV and everybody had the same problem with classic media player. This monster solved everything it's really good and user friendly what is more important (for me). Grate WORK people !!!

This rating is for registered version 2.0.1.0, will review version 3.0.0.1 shortly.

VTM is an excellent, little program and provides exactly what I was looking for. You can generate thumbnails out of every video file that you have codec support for on your system (I have K-lite installed, for example). What is not obvious but also works: You can also generate thumbnails consisting of only the first non-black frame of any video file by setting the time to 0 (beg) and 9999 (sec), something the author told me. Am curious to see if this is integrated as an option in one of the next versions.

I have been using this program since 1 year now and it have improved a lot. I upgraded to the platinum level and it was very worth the donation. The engine is super fast and I can choose thumbnails scrolling the movie. It still have some minor bugs but it's great that the developer is continuosly releasing new versions and fixing bugs. I LOVE THIS PROGRAM!!
