Dolphin's Tooltip & Information Panel Not Displaying Video Metadata
Last modified: 2017-07-04 18:32:49 EDT
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
Steps to Reproduce:
Hover over a video file.
Tooltip only shows Type and Size (in addition to Tags, Rating & Comment)
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.
