    Creating a JPG screenshot on the server side

    Wakebrad
      This problem arises because the Facebook API requires any flash to have an image overlay before the flash is enabled. I want this image to look like the first frame of the flash movie that will replace the image.

      I have seen the BitmapData implementation of taking a screenshot of a user's page and converting it to a JPG but I would rather not leave it up to the browser/user. Is there a way I can generate an image of the first frame of the movie without having to display it for the user?
