You can use the "preview" functionality to take a canvas grab of the 
video and then subsequently upload that canvas grab as a jpeg or png per 
firefoxes supported canvas  and XHR functions.

Its actually a bit easier than it sounds. See 
http://www.firefogg.org/examples/encode_preview.html and then other 
normal video canvas grabbing examples on the web and then examples of 
saving a canvas to a file or to a web post:
