Description Need Real Name 2004-10-25 10:44:42 EDT
Build Identifier: 

totem-video-thumbnailer is missing from the totem package.

$ man totem
       totem-video-thumbnailer(1), xine(1)

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
Comment 1 Colin Walters 2004-10-26 14:58:29 EDT
Alex - why is this being removed now?
rm -f $RPM_BUILD_ROOT%{_bindir}/%{name}-video-thumbnailer
Comment 2 Alexander Larsson 2004-10-27 03:46:05 EDT
a) Because it didn't use to work with gstreamer (it might now)

b) Because it conflicts with the thumbnailer in nautilus-media. That
one uses gstreamer too anyway, so unless you build totem with xine the
gstreamer one is totally useless. 

Note that the property page is removed from totem for the same (b)
reason. I find nautilus-media a better place for these functions, I
don't want that sort of core filemanager behaviour to depend on if or
what video player you installed.

If this is all still the case, the help page(s) for totem will need to be
updated too.

"Totem Movie Player also comes with additional functionalities such as:
 * Video thumbnailer for GNOME.
 * Webcam utility.
 * Nautilus properties tab."
