All reviews for movie thumbnailer

4 reviews, Showing 1 to 4 reviews


It's fast indeed, but the quality of the screenshots is quite poor compared with other tools. (I've tried VCSI, Scorp Video Thumbnails Maker, MPC-HC, SMPlayer, Auto Movie Thumbnailer, StaxRip, PotPlayer, BsPlayer !) It might go unnoticed for small thumbnails but I have a situation where I want 4 tiles of 960x540 pixels generated from 1920x1080 short videos, and MTN's output is dull and blurry. Another issue is that the colors are inaccurate for Bt.709 YUV footage. SMPlayer gets the colors right, the quality is fine, but options are limited and it doesn't allow batch-processing. I managed to tweak VCSI to respect the colors, the picture quality is also fine, but it's much slower than MTN and there are less informations available in the metadata header (although it's easier to tweak with a custom template). Scorp's software doesn't respect Bt.709 colors either, it's faster than VCSI but slower than MTN (even with the so-called “ultimate” engine which I found to be actually slightly slower than the basic “crystal” engine available with a free license, at least with my test video).

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!


Review by stratos on Dec 18, 2009 Version: 200808a (August 01, 2008) OS: WinXP Ease of use: 10/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 10/10




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
