Use files from multiple folders

I want to extract images from different videos in different folders (other than the folder for MATLAB code) but I do not want to use a separate code saved in the same directory of each video. Also I want to save the extracted images in the same directory of the original video. Is that possible?

Yes, this is possible.
You can either open the file using the full path to the file, for example
im = imread('c:/mystuff/myvideos/image001.jpg');
or you can change the directory down to the directory where the files are, do what you want and then go back
% Save the original folder so you can go back and navigate to new folder
oldFolder = cd('c:/mystuff/myvideos');
% Read the image, etc
im = imread('image001.jpg');
% Go back to original directory
You can also use relative paths. See https://www.mathworks.com/help/matlab/ref/cd.html for more details.
You can also look at the dir command that is useful to find the names of available files and folders, see https://www.mathworks.com/help/matlab/ref/dir.html
