How would I get a thumbnail for a local video?

Is there a way to screenshot the view of the video, or get the thumbnail from the video directly. Because I want to send a video to a server but I need/want a thumbnail.

I’m not sure, but probably you can use ImageManipulator.manipulate with your video and without any actions, it should return an image from the first frame of the video. If that doesn’t work, then you can try to show your video in <Image /> element and use Expo’s takeSnapshotAsync on this view.
