FFmpeg is used by meta<browser/> to extract images from your videos. It is useful for home videos or for media items that do not have images availalble from online resources.

Folder rips are also supported (VIDEO_TS/BDMV/HVDVD_TS) and minimum file size for your media to use extraction is set to 10MB.

Please note that not all file formats/codecs might be supported, please refer to the FFmpeg Documentation for more details.

You can download FFmpeg from here (get the latest Static build and you only need ffmpeg.exe from that package).


Specify the location to ffmpeg.exe.
