Description William Lovaton 2008-06-01 12:37:05 EDT
Description of problem:
I have some flash videos (.flv) on my hard drive and nautilus doesn't show the
thumbnail of the video.  It just show the default icon, although totem can play
the files just fine, the problem is in the thumbnail generation only.

It used to work fine with Fedora 8 but it doesn't with Fedora 9.

If I execute totem-video-thumbnailer in the command line it works fine:
totem-video-thumbnailer video.flv video.png

But I get the following warning:
** (totem-video-thumbnailer:4592): WARNING **: Unknown codec ID 86022, please
add here

Maybe because of this output nautilus thinks there was an error and fails to
show the preview.

What can the problem be? it seems it works but not through nautilus.

The system is up to date.

FYI, I just had a similar problem. The fix was to add a gconf thumbnailer entry
for video@x-flv instead of the existing video@flv (without the "x-"). Details
can be found in this similar report :
