Video Thumbnails with the Files Plugin?

I am using Elgg 1.8.3...

I was wondering if it was possible, or if anyone has heard of a successful way to generate thumbnails for videos uploaded from the stock files plugin.  Pictures have thumbnails, however video and other files just have plain icons.  Im fine with that for regular files but would really like thumbnails for my videos...especially since I have gallery view forced.

I read ffmpeg is usually required serverside to do this, maybe a way to integrate ffmpeg with the files plugin?
