I love my MX Player Pro and also use it for my 3 year old son so he can watch movies and tv shows. The only thing I would like to change is the ability to change how the thumbnail for the video is created. Right now it seems that it is a screenshot at a certain time interval.
The problem is that TV series from one show will all have the same thumbnail which is somewhere from the intro. That way my son can't distinguish between the different episodes.

Is it possible to change the way MX Player creates the thumbnails see for instance take a screen halfway through the video?

+1 for this request. Almost all of my kid's thumbnails are of the Disney castle intro

I've switched from MX player pro to VLC beta for the time being. The thumbnails there seem to be generated further into the video.
