Custom Thumbnail generator

Budget $30 - $250 USD

I am looking for someone who can build me a thumbnail generator, I am on a very small budget as this will just be for personal use so please keep that in mind if bidding.

Specifically one that opens a video in a major video format such as avi, mov, mkv, wmv and create thumbnails every "x" seconds, they should be displayed in a 'x' column 'y' row alignment and be able to handle video files up to 25 GB. The image show also show the video time. Once the first image is filled it will create another image file and continue the process until there is no video left.

core requirements:

-Supports major video formats.

-Allows user to specify thumbnail capture time, every 'x' seconds.

-Allows user to specify the number of rows and columns

-Creates a new one when previous is full. ( based off user set columns and rows number )

-Shows video time in snapshot.

-Must be fast and coded efficiently.

-Must sequentially name pictures

-Easily monitor progress

-Easy file selection

not required but would like to see we can discuss additional costs.

-Create a new folder for each video and sequentially name pictures

-Ability to que files.

-Ability to pause and resume thumbnail renders ( as it will be a lot of disk io )

There are a lot of open source code that is very similar so adapting something shouldn't be too hard.

Attached is an example of what I expect each picture to look like, minus the time lapse interval and the row/column arrangement

I used windows media player classic for this example.

As a benchmark for speed, 160 images ( 8x20 ) at 5 second interval on a video scrub should take less than 6 seconds and cover ~13 minutes of video.

For larger and longer files it should be ~ 7 minutes to thumbnail a 15 hour video.
