I have got requirements from client for uploading and displaying videos in the website. I have tried displaying media player using html object/embed tags and it works fine but there are few problems.
1) I need to display thumbnail of video as well to display before video is clicked for playing. Just for my clarification what is the process of thumbnail generation? Do we need to create it somehow at the time when user is actually uploading that video(i m
using ajax asyncfileupload for that) and save this thumbnail picture somewhere for later use OR it can be generated later when video is actually ready to be displayed at website and played.
2) The videos with larger size are not playing even from my local system. Most probably what is happening at back end is that video is being downloaded and user cant see anything whats happening. So, what should I do for that? Is video buffering the solution
for that? How can i do that?
3) I wanted to use ASP.Net Media player control but its not working on my website. The possible reason could be that I have downloaded control for 3.5 and my website is in 4.0. So, from where can i get .net media player control for 4.0?
Need urgent help please.

If you want "you tube" like features in your website: thumb nails creation and fast streaming, you can use FFmpeg which is open source. In addition of thumb nail creation you can also perform various operations for videos and audios using FFmpeg API. :
