1) You can achieve it by getting the center frame of the video which you have stored in the document directory.

2) You can store the center frame image of the video to document directory so that you don't have to generate everytime.

3) Display video thumbnail inside collectionview.

Refer this link for get frame of the video :

Create thumbnail from a video url in IPhone SDK


 NSString *videoPath = [videoURL path];
MPMoviePlayerViewController *videoPlayerView = [[MPMoviePlayerViewController alloc] initWithContentURL:[NSURL URLWithString:videoPath]];
[self presentMoviePlayerViewControllerAnimated:videoPlayerView]; [videoPlayerView.moviePlayer play];
