mplayer -really-quiet -nosound -benchmark -vo 
jpeg:outdir=/path/to/directory -vf scale=80:80 -frames 3 inputvideo.avi

this will dump the first 3 frames because for some weird reason the 
first one is always blank (even if frame 1 of the file has content).

you can use the framestep video filter to skip to a particular frame.
