We need, both as part of the migration and during new video upload, to either generate or allow the inclusion of video thumbnails. Maybe generate, with an option to override in the media editor?

Update on this:
* Offer an option to upload thumbnail (this week)
* Discuss with IT and legal about getting ffmpeg on the server (or other way of generating video thumbnails).
* Generate thumbnails for migrated videos (I can do this myself) (next week)

Bumping down priority, it doesn't block this week's test day.

Discussed some. Looks like we have ffmpeg 0.5.2 (iirc) along with libvorbis and libtheora as RPMs. No libvpx (for webm). ffmpeg comes with flv support. We need to figure out some details about this, but given our time frame to code freeze next week, generating thumbnails will have to wait for post-2.3. Filed bug 612362 for future.
