Create a jpg file without also outputting a mux?


Encoding - VOD


Hello, I currently (on Azure Media Services) have a feature that allows users to choose a different timecode/frame for a thumbnail. This happens arbitrarily after the initial encoding has been completed. Is there a way to export just a jpg file from an input file? Or do I need to reference the original videoStream from the original encoding job? Or is there some other process that I’m missing?

Any advice is much appreciated!

Thumbnail generation is part of the encoding process, so you typically need to choose the thumbnail position before the encoding job start. Generating new thumbnails after the encoding job is done would require a re encoding.
