View Full Version : First frame of video question

09-16-2009, 04:08 AM
Hello everyone,

I have a php community site and I have a video screen to show uploaded videos. It shows the first frame which is black. Is there anything I can do so that is shows the 10th or 15th or any other frame so that the screen shows an image and not a black screen.

Many thanks for any thoughts any one has.

This is a topic pertaining to FFMPEG:


Not all webhosts have that enabled, but I'm sure you can
select any frame. Your "black frame" is a common issue.
