Could you please avoid "questions" like "can anybody help"? This is not a valid question. (I didn't report it as "not a question" because the question in the title is quite valid. :-) Of course you will get help on such a basic problem, how can you doubt that?

The best way I know (and this is a very good way) is using open-source FFMpeg or libav. It solves this and many other problems just perfectly and does not depend on any other code; it also can be embedded in your code. Please see my past answers:

how to convert image to video in C#[^].

As Sergey has already pointed out, consider using FFMpeg to extract images from your video file. See the answer to this SO question for the command line:

Thank you, Ravi. I must admit theFFMpeg command line is complicated enough, so it will take some considerable time to master it.
At the same time, there is a comprehensive documentation obtained by just running the utility with different parameters.
It should be read anyway, even if the basics of the use are already clear. However, your link could provide a useful hint or a starting point.
