Generating a video thumbnail using ffmpeg upon file upload

  • Hey! I’d imagine this is kind of outside of the scope of ACF itself, but I do wonder if anyone has any advice regarding this and would be really grateful for help:

    I have a front-end form where users can upload either an image or a video, and it’s all working nicely, however upon file upload I want to generate a thumbnail for videos (which will then be used in the video’s ‘poster’ attribute). I know ffmpeg can do this on the server, but I have no idea how to do it upon file upload from the form submission – it’s a little over my head!

    Is this something that any of you guys have ever done, or have insight into how to go about this?
