Hi, I would like to display a video thumbnail in a picturebox. I've been searching for answers, but most of what I've found (.GetThumbnailImage, System.Drawing.Image, etc.) seem to only work for images, not video. All I want to do is display the same thumbnail as windows file explorer. I have ffmpeg installed, but the articles that I've found on how to it use through are a bit confusing for a novice like me. Please help.

The central clue is that you describe yourself as a novice. The articles are telling you how to do it. A novice should learn their language of choice, not try to write a cutting edge app.

Having said that, this[^] article describes what you need, I think. I would cache the thumbnails, not generate them at the point of demand.
