I think you are taking the wrong approach. If you look at the resolution of your video and compare that with the resolution allowed for your icon, the icon is going to be nothing like the video. You are better to just design an icon or if you are artistically challenged just get someone to do it for you.

Re: get image from video

i can take an image from the video but when the video is running, using snapshot, but i want to get an image wihtout playing the video, and i think the resolution isnt a problem.

Re: get image from video

Video is made up of frames so if you only take a single frame it's going to look like hell. Anyway it's not really a Blackberry topic but I have used Video2Photo to do something similar. Not sure if you can still get it but I am sure there are others. Just google Video2Photo
