Offline you can do it with virtualdub then resize with a image editing application.

There' multiple options for output but I don't think resizing is one of them. You can export every frame if you want or even every x amount of frames.

Other than that most videoplayers have this option or id you have windows machine MS Movie Maker has a snapshot option.
