Description (last modified by Elrond)

In HTML5 video, there's a poster attribute on the tag, it contains
the URL to an image that should be shown initially before the
player has started.

POSTER IMAGE DIMENSIONS
Fetch from encoded video. It's available on the instantiated
VideoThumbnailer in the dst\_data after encoding the video.

EXTRACTING THE IMAGE
We should perhaps use the VideoThumbnailer. IIRC it's possible to
pass custom dimensions to it.

Nothing done on this yet, this might be considered a bite-sized bug though.

HTML5 video usually preloads the first frame to show if no poster picture is present.

(we seem to love the variant without dash it seems)
(Description not modified. I don't know, why it thinks I did.)

Bassam, do you know what the current status of this is? If I remember correctly you worked on it to some extent?

comment:7 Changed 7 years ago by Bassam Kurdali

I got it working but afaik there are issues with aspect ratio: if we have a wide ratio image, the poster is not tall enough.
I'll push what I have to my gitorious (might need some help there) and then attempt to tackle that problem :)
