For images we can scale the image and use that as Icon and on the click on Icon, i can display the main Bitmap.
Is it possible to do that for creating a video/audio gallary kind of stuff?
For Audio - I thought i can have same icon and text name. On click of that we can write the code to play the audio.
For Video - Example like Youtube. They have icon for each video which is a snapshot of somewhere from video. I am not sure if they seperatly store the icon by taking a snapshot while we upload video or something like that.
Is something similar possible to create in BB or we have to manually store the icons for each video or something like that, so that user can scroll the icons and play the video .

Checked in Storm simulator. Media -> Videos - Just displays the file name. And Explore displays a common icon for files. So i think its the OS behviour. (In Nokia we get thumbnails displayed for video files). And i don't think it would be advisable to store seperate icon for each video.
Please correct if my understanding is wrong.

I see the thread is marked as resolved but I cannot find out any solution. You meant that you will use a snapshot from video for thumbnail of this video.
If so, could you share me the code to get snapshot from a video file.
One more thing, if the video has been never player before, the snapshot will automatically get the first screen (the black screen as usual). Is this

Sorry for inconvenience. For Nokia Phones it is handled by OS, so we dont have to worry about that. But in case of Blackberry, i think taking snapshot of each video is tedious process (You have to manually take a screen shot on desktop and use that as icon) ans also in case of video which has not been played before, its not possible.
So we could give a common icon for Video files and dont worry about the snapshot of video.
