I think the still frame/thumbnail/poster frame/… is a feature of the file.
Maybe you should ask on one of the video-cantered program Fora for advice on changing that.
Or maybe this is helpful

When making a contact sheet with Video files,
Is this a Photoshop feature? Can you describe how to find it? OK, I found it. Bridge > Tools > Photoshop > Contact Sheet II
Well I tried it twice, the second time after changing the preview frame in Bridge, but it still reverted to the first frame when making the Contact Sheet, so I have a feeling it is not easily doable — but before reading your post, I didn't even know CS worked with video files.
So it is going to come down to grabbing the relevant still frame from each video, and saving them to a folder from which you can build your contact sheet. Brian O'Neil Hughs shows you two ways to do this in this video
Changing the file thumbnails doesn't effect Photoshop's Contact sheets. I believe this is because they just default to the first frame.
I think you are right.
But when one creates a pdf from Bridge’s Output Module that seems to honour mov-files’ Poster Frames.
The normal Bridge Contact Sheet II system just redirects to Photoshop. I didnt realize Bridge could create a PDF. Is it essential the same as making a contact sheet? How do I do that?
