[Matroska-devel] Periodic thumbnails for seeking

I was talking with a VLC dev about the possibility of adding a feature.
When browsing a video on Netflix by hovering over the progress bar a
thumbnail of that time point in the video.

He was saying that while it would be possible a file would have to be
preprocessed in its entirety to generate the thumbnails. Why not embed this
data into the container instead? Could a feature like this be added to MKV
then eventually added to various software that encodes/multiplexes and
decodes/demultiplexes MKV files?

I apologize for my lack of knowledge, container formats and codecs are not
my field of expertise.
