I have created FLV files through Premiere which I imported into Dreamweaver and from there insert media Flash Video. I followed the options of what kinds of player disply to use, but there's no options for creating a thumbnail of the video. They all default to the first frame, but the first frame is black. Is there any way to pick a different shot or add a jpg still of a shot in the media player?
This has to be done in Premiere. And it's not called a thumbnail which may be why you didn't find the option. It is called a poster frame. The best documentation I could find is CS3 (link below), but if you search the help in CS4 I am sure you can find the answer because I doubt a feature like this would move very far.
Thnx for your reply.
It's very close to what you're mentioning, but it appears to be for the panel previw on Premire.
I really would like a chosen poster frame on the Flash Video skin to be shown before someone hits play.
