Question by Morteza M.
I need a jQuery plugin for uploading video files. it should generate some pictures out of movie as it is uploading ( not after the file uploaded ). Do you know such a plugin? if there is no plugin with this feature, can you suggest me some tutorials or articles about doing such a thing?

Your comment dismisses this because it’s “time and resource consuming”…trust me, you doing this server-side correctly and returning a few KB in thumbnails is far faster than flash opening and playing with a video to get thumbnails (then uploading those too). Also consider it from a security standpoint, it’s consistent and prevents your uploader from sending fake thumbnails that don’t match the video at all.

In My Opinion you cannot find a uploading plugins based on its extension. Like Document uploader, Image uploader, video uploader, game uploader, sql uploader. This is not a genuine question, instead you can a uploader script to upload all these. And what you decide to do, or how you decide to present the uploaded file, its up to you.
Here is a plugin, for all in one purpose
However here are some links which can help
