After a long, long, long time, finally I can view my videos thumbnails in Dolphin.
I reported a Bug in RPMFusion Bugzilla back in Januay 2016 and earlier this morning I got the surpise that it was Resolved!
I want to thank Leigh Scott for getting this done. I’m really happy about it, since I have lots and lots of videos and being able to look at a small thumbnail is really helpful.
So, to get the package installed, all you need to do is:
$sudo dnf install ffmpegthumbs
After that, just need to enable it in Dolphin by going to Preferences > Configure Dolphin > General > Previews > Video files (ffmpegthumbs) and that’s it!
Thanks again for making this happen.
When updating KDE in my Fedora 23, I lost the video previews in Dolphin. Even after installing ffmpegthumbs did not work.
So here is the solution:
sudo cp /usr/share/kde4/services/ffmpegthumbs.desktop /usr/share/kservices5/
sudo cp /usr/lib64/kde4/ffmpegthumbs.so /usr/lib64/qt5/plugins/
You need to have installed ffmpegthumbs for this to work, to install it:
sudo dnf install ffmpegthumbs
And you need to enable the video preview again in Dolphin.
kffmpegthumbnailer it’s faster than mplayerthumbs.
To install it, we need to:
yum install kffmpegthumbnailer
To enable it in Dolphin:
Preferences -> Configure Dolphin -> General -> Previews -> Video Files (kffmpegthumbnailer)
Check that option, and it’s done, now we have a really fast preview of our video files in Dolphin.
