Here is another simple code to get thumbnails of uploaded videos.
You need to;
Get MTN from http://moviethumbnail.sourceforge.net/index.en.html
Extract it in a folder called thumbnailer under your web root
Get ASPEXEC.rar (135.80 kb). Install aspexec.dll to your server (regsvr32 %pathtodll%)
Create an upload script with your favorite upload component
Edit your upload script and insert below code after upload process
Set objExecutor = Server.CreateObject("ASPExec.Execute")
objExecutor.Application = Server.Mappath("thumbnailer/mtn.exe")
objExecutor.TimeOut = 9000
objExecutor.Parameters = "-b 1 -j 100 -o .jpg -c 1 -r 1 -i -t -P -w 0 -O "&thumbnailpath&"\thumbnail.jpg"
objExecutor.ShowWindow = False
Set objExecutor = Nothing
