Description

Some Kodi skins support PVR Thumbnails. I guess this would be three different features:

- support Thumbnails via HTSP

- create Thumbnail files for recordings (could also be done with a post-processing script)

- creat Thumbnail files for channels (on-request from kodi, some skins like Mimic support showing only 8 of your most-watched channels, but probably still not a good idea, could also be done with an external script, but i would do it (optionally) with the channel-discovery and/or epg-scan, when the channel/mux is tuned anyway)

https://trac.ffmpeg.org/wiki/Create%20a%20thumbnail%20image%20every%20X%20seconds%20of%20the%20video

but there is a small problem,
TVH is OnDemand streamer aka images from used streams can be taken.

example from TSReader

Yeahyeah, i'm aware that you can do this with ffmpeg, that's what i meant with "could also be done with a post-processing script". But having thumbs on the tvheadend-server is pretty pointless, if you can't access them via htsp...

But now that i'm thinking about it, if you have *.edl files, kodi will use the marks to jump around the advertisments. Does someone know if the cutmarks are somehow transmitted via htsp, or is there already a generic way in htsp to access a file on the server...?
