The answer is I don't know. Do you have at least a demo of a website that has that feature. If you do then maybe it is possible to recreated that feature if the language is in jquery/javascript/php/mysql/css.

The only method I know of would be to use PHP FFMPEG to capture a frame from the video and generate an image out of it. You would need to see if it is already enabled on your host, or see if they even allow it. A lot of shared hosting does not because it is a huge resource hog when someone is using it for video conversions.

Here is a PHP wrapper to make it a little easier to work with FFMPEG.
