    What the title says. My theme looks ugly without them.

    Here's my site:
    Code:
    moviestowatchonline.net
    See what I mean?

    Can anybody help me add thumbnails?

    Pause the playback at a suitable frame; hit your printscreen button; EDIT --> PASTE into a graphics editor; crop everything but the video; upload; post. XNView or IrfanView will do the cropping...both freeware. IrfanView is more popular; I use XNView because it does vectors too.

    There's a bunch of capture utilities if you want to skip the cropping part. FastStone Capture is a non-free one I'd recommend if you're doing a lot (good all-round capture tool), but there's quite likely a freeware 'active window' capture app around that would do the same.

    You'll still have to upload them and edit the posts though.

    If you're going to be doing a lot of em, check out FrameShots. It offers some good batch handling and automation.

    For a server side solution, just google: how to automatically make thumbnails from video. The first result has the complete php code, though ffmpeg is required.

    I think the All-in-one-video-pack from Kaltura will do this and a lot more.

    My bad, I left out TubePress which I believe also has loads of features like this.

    Yes there are some ways to do that, but need some coding with the theme to automatically take the first post picture and show it as thumbnail in home page, but I can't see any images in your posts ?

    I use a plugin called Thumbnail Viewer it's a piece of cake to use and works a treat
