Command line tool(useful for batching) but GUI/Frontend also available.

Version history / Release notes / Changelog:
version 200808a
- release year and month is now used as the version number.
- fix aspect ratio bugs. mtn now should behave the same as vlc's snapshot.
- bug: the Video: lines in stderr no longer show input scaling info ( => WxH).
scaling info is still shown in the final output image and the info text file.
this cannot be fixed easily.
- add -a aspect_ratio option to override input file's display aspect ratio.
- add non-seek mode -- slower but more accurate timing.
non-seek is good for small time step or small clips.
- seek or non-seek mode is auto selected and can be overridden by -z or -Z.
- fix possible extra space char after video size info of previous version.
- make shot size even. this should fix vertical dots when # of column is odd.
- output files modified since program start time will not be overwritten.
- the finding of new shots to evade blank & blur is improved.
# of skipped shots should be reduced.
- negative time step (-s) is removed. it doesn't seem to be useful.
- previous versions reported # of decoded shots/s; changed to # of final shots/s
- default info_color, background color, and jpeg quality has been changed.

The best video thumbnails creator bar none. I am amazed at how blazingly fast it is compared to the other programs I've used. Many thanks to the author of this excellent tool. I highly recommend that others give this program a try.

Indeed indeed incredible simple incredible fast.
The only thing you must know is
Where is mtn.exe?
Where is my file?
How many rows to grab? or Grab a picture all 60 seconds, 120 seconds.
Example: I have unzipped
http://download2.videohelp.com/download/mtn-200808a-win32andfrontend01.zip
to
C:\Programme\moviethumbs\

My File is on an external drive
"N:\fulldvd\MYMOVIE.mkv"

I grab an image all 60 seconds:
-s 60

This string is used at Start_Run:

C:\Programme\moviethumbs\mtn-200808a-win32\mtn.exe -P -h 0 -c 3 -s 60 -w 1024 -g 0 -j 80 -b 0,80 -D 12 -L 4:2 -k 000000 -f tahomabd.ttf -F FFFFFF:12:tahomabd.ttf:FFFFFF:000000:10 -T "" "N:\fulldvd\MYMOVIE.mkv"

And within 10 seconds !!!!! 111 pictures in 3 rows are generated in a file MYMOVIE_s.jpg (1,381 MB).

If you save the great string

C:\Programme\moviethumbs\mtn-200808a-win32\mtn.exe -P -h 0 -c 3 -s 60 -w 1024 -g 0 -j 80 -b 0,80 -D 12 -L 4:2 -k 000000 -f tahomabd.ttf -F FFFFFF:12:tahomabd.ttf:FFFFFF:000000:10 -T "" "N:\fulldvd\MYMOVIE.mkv"

in a text file, you must only change the movie's title, paste it into START-RUN and you are much faster than with all the other third class programs!

This is the best freeware video thumbnailer available if you know how to use parameters in shortcuts or know how to use the command line. It is fast and does what it needs to do.

I use these parameters if anyone is interested: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Movie Thumbnailer\mtn.exe" -b 0.70 -B 30 -D 6 -P -E 5 -g 4 -k 000000 -o .jpg -W -w 1024 -c 4 -r 4
