    I was wondering if there was a way to control what image appears on the video avi when a video is listed or searched for? Any Ideas?

    If you are talking about the thumbnail of videos on Google, it would be controlled by the web app displaying the video.
    Are you using a YouTube clone or something?
    (you need to give more info in order for me to give a good answer)

    Im using convert files to get the videos I want. When I upload them to Youtube I want to be sure that a very specific clip is shown as the thumbnail on youtube for marketing purposes. Im in the process of getting videos right now so I have not uploaded anything at all yet, I want to know ahead of time so I can have more range over what videos I can use for my intents, because sometimes just a small clip of the video is what viewers want to see and they will never get to it if they dont know its there. Does that help?

    On youtube, you can upload an image to be the thumbnail of your video, this affects youtube's site and on google.

    Yep, it's only for the partners. But you just have to put your thumbnail at the exact middle of your video when you edit it. Then you can choose it in the settings.
