1. Ensure you are set for organizational deployment

Please see the organizational deployment guide

  • Open Source or Commercial:
    • Proxy Repository - Create a proxy nuget repository on Nexus, Artifactory Pro, or a proxy Chocolatey repository on ProGet. Point your upstream to Packages cache on first access automatically. Make sure your choco clients are using your proxy repository as a source and NOT the default community repository. See source command for more information.
    • You can also just download the package and push it to a repository Download

3. Enter your internal repository url

(this should look similar to

4. Choose your deployment method:

choco upgrade amt -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'" [other options]

See options you can pass to upgrade.

See best practices for scripting.

Add this to a PowerShell script or use a Batch script with tools and in places where you are calling directly to Chocolatey. If you are integrating, keep in mind enhanced exit codes.

If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:

choco upgrade amt -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'"

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"
$validExitCodes = @(0, 1605, 1614, 1641, 3010)
if ($validExitCodes -contains $exitCode) {
  Exit 0

THE Batch Movie ScreenCap Creator… Create ScreenCaps of

– any number of movies,
– located anywhere on your computer,
– manually or with a time-scheduler,
– with a free to choose number of caps,
– the ability to ignore already processed files,
– a customizable design
– and most important, it allows you to do it in Batch Mode!

AMT is THE Batch Movie ScreenCap Creator!

The AMT – Auto-Movie-Thumbnailer is an automation GUI to batch create ScreenCaps, Thumbnail Index Pictures, Preview Pictures or Contact Sheets for any given number of movies. It supports many different input (AVI, MPG, Quicktime, Real-Media, Windows-Media,….) formats, in fact every input format that is supported by MPlayer.

Additionally AMT offers you a huge number of possibilities to customize the design and layout of the ScreenCaps.

AMT works by remotely controlling the MPlayer, some applications of the ImageMagick Suite and a MediaInfo plugin to perform the screenshoting and Picture creation.

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
