Thumbnailer Efficiency

edited March 2007 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
I think Thumbnailer can be modified to be more effective. The high point of Filebrowser is that it is much easier to upload photos via ftp than using a web form, but thumbnailing is annoying because it is a huge manual process. It should be a one click process. 1. click 2. get all the files recursively 3. sort them in descending order by the most recent 4. check if it has thumbnail > if not generate and continue > else stop Point 4 assumes that if it found a thumbnailed image, the rest will be thumbnailed, so there is no point in checking all files. I like FileBrowser. I even modified it to work with flash: Granted, it doesn't know how to create a flash thumbnail. I wonder how youtube reads the video, takes a frame and generates a thumbnail.
