I am looking at these programs for a paid membership website. I havea couple of questions.
1) I a using .htaccess for membership control, but would like the thumbnails to be in a different directoy then actual file. Thus, non paid members ca see the thumbs, but in order to d/l the actual multimedia file, they would have to log in. I plan to use this with phpnuke, but *NOT* use the username features of nuke. I prefer the stability of htaccess/htpasswd and I have a lot of software already in place keyed around this format.
2) Is there a way to adjust which frame of a multimedia file is used for the thumbnail creation. Many of my clips have a blank frame as thefist frame, fading in to a title, then fading into the clip. It would be of no help if it only gras the first frame, as they would all be a blue screen
. Is this something handled from within imagemajik? (already installed on server)
