Description of problem:

When hovering over a video file in Dolphin the tooltip is missing the extra metadata information about the video such as duration, bitrate, width, height etc.

Same goes for the Information Panel.

Version-Release number of selected component:

Dolphin Version 17.04.1

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:

Hover over a video file.

Actual results:

Tooltip only shows Type and Size (in addition to Tags, Rating & Comment)

Expected results:

Actual result PLUS video metadata such as duration, bitrate, width, height, etc.

After digging around I realize the problem is caused by a missing file - kfilemetadata_ffmpegextractor.so

This is because the kf5-kfilemetadata package has been built without the global ffmpeg variable set to 1.

I've downloaded the kf5-kfilemetadata source and re-built it with the ffmpeg global set to 1. After installing this updated version of kf5-kfilemetadata I can now see the video metadata in Dolphin.

Since kfilemetadata_ffmpegextractor is dependent on ffmpeg.devel which is not in the official Fedora repositories I'll close this bug.
