    We have a simple module that creates a thumbnail found here. You could modify the source or use it as a starting point in developing your own http provider.

    Alternatively, you might try just using ffmpeg in a similar fashion:
    ffmpeg -y  -i [input-file].[ext] -f [output-format] -vframes [number-of-frames] -ss [seconds-offset] [output-file].[ext]
    
    #create thumbnail of sample.mp4 file 30 seconds in
    ffmpeg -y  -i sample.mp4 -f mjpeg -vframes 1 -ss 30 sample.jpg

    Another option would be to use a stream class stream to publish the VOD content as a live source to the Transcoder and then use the HTTPProvider:
