Using BIF files for custom trick play logic

I have used Video node for video playback in my application and set the enableUI field to false. I've created a custom seek bar, custom trick play logic, and other views above the video player, as, title, time spent, etc.
I am having BIF URLs for all the VOD contents. But I can't find how to decode a ".bif" file or how to extract images from the ".bif" file.

According to the new certification criteria, we need to display thumbnails while performing trick play on video player. So, can we use BIF files for our custom trick play logic? Is there any such way?

Can anyone suggest anything?

Re: Using BIF files for custom trick play logic

I think for custom trick play logic you'll want to use individual jpegs, not a BIF file.  The examples given here might help:
