Mplayer can dump a frame from the command line from any video file it can
read. You can also seek to a certain frame to dump.

I mean from php if I have videos on the linux server.
How can I create screenshot preview of these videos to build a page and show
all the videos available on my server ?

There is at least one ImageMagick library for PHP on SourceForge.
ImageMagick can understand MPEG with the right codec installed.
