[mythtv] Yet Another MythVideo suggestion - the Gnome/Nautilus
automatic way of creating covers

I'm not a developer, just a user, but I thought I'd suggest something.
I see in both the dev and users mailing lists a lot of talk about covert
arts in MythVideo and how to insert your own cover art to Movies/TV
Shows/Videos that don't have an entry in IMDB.
I think that instead of relying on the manual way to do things, why not
do it the Gnome/Nautilus way. For those who haven't seen it yet, in
gnome 2.4+ when you browse in the nautilus file manager to a directory
with movies, it automatically extracts a random frame from the movie for
each file, and saves it in ~/.thumbnails for future use.
So I was thinking, why not implement the same idea in MythVideo for
files that do not have an IMDB entry?
I would do this myself, but unfortunetly i'm not a programmer.
What do you think?
