Question PDF Cover howto: first page instead of generic cover for lots of PDFs?

There are hundreds of pdf-files in my library all with the generic cover. I would like to have just the first page as the cover instead. I know how to do it for each file individually, but this would take a lot of time ...
Any ideas how I can do this faster?
