    Question Video thumbnails in nautilus

    Hello,

    I tried to search about this from google and opensuse forums but didn't find any help, so I'm starting this topic.

    I just updated to OpenSUSE 11.1 with newest gnome and default kernel. The problem is, I don't have video thumbnails any more in nautilus. If I recall correctly, in 11.0 I had them with totem-xine, but now I can't find it in any repos. Added some additional repositories, but still nothing.

    If there is not totem-xine available, how to get video thumbnails, I mean like generating automatically every time I open a folder with video files in it.

    Currently I'm only seeing video file icons from my icon theme.

    Help would be highly appreciated.

    Sincerely,

    Rolle

    Hi
    On SLED 11 (equiv 11.1) here and no issues, I'm pretty sure in my vmware
    machines I see them too. I'm currently running a build on a 11.2 M7
    setup so won't be able to confirm in an 11.1 machine for a few hours

    mplayerthumbs is for konqueror, I use nautilus. Installed it though, but nothing. ffmpegthumbnailer is installed but does nothing as well. Tried "killall nautilus" -command but no help...

    Edit: Not sure if this tutorial is what you're after, but here it is anyway.

    I found an old Fedora thread concerning similar issue.

    Standard Gnome (installed from /oss repo) should have the following file:

    /usr/bin/totem-video-thumbnailer

    Can you please check if the above file is present in your system?

    I need to get thumbnails automatically in nautilus, I'm not interested in generating thumbnails every time in video folder... or is this the way how it works? Please inform me how to set ffmpegthumbnailer automatic, or it's no use for me.

    This helped me in 11.0, but the topic is from year 2005, and 11.1 doesn't have totem-xine as I explained when starting this topic.

    Thanks! It endeed is present, but it only gives me usage options when starting from command line, just like ffmpegthumbnailer. So how to get it to thumbnail video files automatically?

    It seems this uses kde and is for konqueror. Since I use gnome and nautilus it's no use for me. I can't stand kde3-gui...

    Hi
    Have you tried removing the ~/.thumbnail/fail directory to tell
    Naultilus to regenerate the the thumbnails?
