thumbnails

Gnome thumbnails in CentOS

Since some time I was wondering why my Gnome did not generated thumbnails for various video formats (avi, mkv, ...) as thumbnails in my file browser (nautilus) really help me navigate.

Today I investigated some more, and even though I have the whole gstreamer-plugins set installed what I apparently needed was gstreamer-ffmpeg !

When RPMforge is enabled, simply do:

apt-get install gstreamer-ffmpeg
or
yum install gstreamer-ffmpeg
