Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 172043
Nautilus does not respect the file size limit when creating thumbnails
Last modified: 2013-03-13 00:49:14 EDT
Nautilus does not respect the file size limit settings when creating thumbnails
for video files. I've set the limit to 3mb (Desktop->Preferences->File
Manager->Preview->"Only for files smaller than") but Nautilus still tries to
create thumbnails for files much lager than that.
Is this beeing looked into for the FC5 release?
This is a totem issue, as that is what does the video thumbnails. I'm not sure
it really should be fixed though, as the size doesn't affect the time it takes
to thumbnail a video in the same way it takes for an image.
I.E. Thumbnailing a 100 meg image is bad, while thumbnailing a 600 meg movie is
totally ok, and expected.
What is your concern with thumbnailing a movie > 3mb? The frame size is most
likely much smaller (and what is really being thumbnailed)
That means that the bug really is in the File Management Preferences which gives
a wrong impressions of what that option actually means. If this limit is really
only applied to images then the dialog shouldn't claim it is applied to all
"Other Previewable Files".
I aggree, it should be file upstream though. It is hard to come up with precise
verbage though. Thumbnail is Capture < MB? I even dislike having the user
determine a threshold. Perhaps just a slider fast <-------------> flashy
Filed this upstream and added the bug to the external bugzilla references.
