Generating video preview thumbnails

Hello!

 

I was curious, is there a way to generate video preview thumbnails? With youtube, netflix, etc whenever you are seeking through a video, it'll show preview images so you can gauge where you want to start watching. Thanks! :)

Thank you both for the replies!

 

Hi, some apps already support this. Getting it into all apps is something we'd like to do in the future.

So client apps support this and not the server itself?

 

What device is your client on jmac? I remux my MKVs purposely so I have scrubbing thumbnails on my ATV4.

I'm running emby-server on linux right now. All my clients are android phones/tvs.

Surely android clients would support scrubbing thumbnails if I can manage it on a ATV4.  You may have to remux to MP4, but still......

Specifically, the Roku (with appropriate plug-in) and Apple TV support this now.

I see the roku plug-in. Does the apple tv support using that plugin or do they create them on-the-fly?
