    I really like BS Player and use it constantly on my Galaxy Tab 10.1.
    I find it has a fantastic LAN streaming capability and great interface. However, it auto selects the thumbnails.

    This isn't necessarily a problem for me bc I use it set to 'file list'.

    However, my 5 yr old can't read yet, so I set it to Thumbnails.
    Unfortunately, the auto gen thumbnail feature selects some random frame 99% of the time, and the image will have no bearing on the movie whatsoever.

    Is there another video player that allows you to select your own thumbnail from a screenshot or picture file?

    Tnx

    After a bit of searching I found "Archos Video Player".

    It doesnt allow user defined thumbnails but instead it reads the movie title, searches the web and grabs the official movie poster for the film.

    Way better then some screen cap from the video.

    The best part is there's an option to auto open your vids with another player.
    I just use archos to browse my movies and play with BS Player.

    Not only do I use it for my daughter, it looks so good I use it for myself.

    Have you tried taking a screen shot, or get a copy of the cover picture you want as the display, and rename the image the same as the video, and placing it in the same folder add the video?

    Well, no need to now. The "Movie Posters" look way better then anything I could capture.
