thumb = Page.MapPath("") +"\\frame3.jpg"; // thumb name with path !
ffmpeg = new Process();
ffmpeg.StartInfo.Arguments = " -i \""+video+"\ -s 108*80  -vframes 1 -f image2 -vcodec mjpeg \""+thumb+"\"; // arguments !
ffmpeg.StartInfo.FileName = Page.MapPath("ffmpeg.exe");

This is redundant. We'll help when we feel like it, and most people inclined to help will help when they read this ( as I did ).

What do you mean by 'not working' ? You seem to be just using ffmpeg.exe to do what you want, instead of writing code to extract a frame. You're obviously doing it on a website, why are your video and filenames hard coded ?

As your code does close to nothing, there's not much to say. You need to tell us what bit does not work. Does ffmpeg run ? It's what does the work, you either are not mapping paths properly, you have a permissions issue, or you're not running ffmpeg with the right parameters.

hai christian...
actually your code is working and ffmpeg.exe also fine.I had hard coded the path only for testing purposes and the problem is all generated thumnails are black background only.I had test it for a number of videos but the result is same..
