Description Marko Djordjevic 2022-02-13 10:00:45 UTC
media-video/ffmpegthumbnailer does not install file /usr/share/thumbnailers/ffmpegthumbnailer.thumbnailer which makes it not used by different file managers for generating video thumbnails, pcmanfm-qt in my case.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install pcmanfm-qt
2. install ffmpegthumbnailer with -gnome
3. turn on thumbnails for file manager
Actual Results:  
There are no video thumbnails.

Expected Results:  
There should be video thumbnails.

I think just adding it by default wouldn't hurt, having ffmpegthumbnailer.thumbnailer file hidden under "Gnome support" requires user to check ebuild for clues and pcmanfm-qt has nothing to do with gnome.

To get thumbnailing of videos in caja I had to create /usr/share/thumbnailers/ffmpegthumbnailer.thumbnailer.

ffmpegthumbnailer is installed as 
   Installed versions:  2.2.2-r1^t{tbz2}(22:46:38 01/23/23)(gtk jpeg png -gnome -test).

I USE "-gnome" as I don't want gnome trying to pull in systemd--I don't know if it still does that.

After copying ffmpegthumbnailer.thumbnailer from another distro, and restarting caja, I could see the new thumbnails.
