MPlayerThumbs is a video thumbnail generator for KDE file managers (Konqueror, Dolphin, ...) , now available also for KDE 4.
It needs mplayer (of course) to generate thumbnails, and it contains no linking to any library, so in a x86_64 system you can freely use the 32bit mplayer binary with win32codecs by configuring the application launching the mplayerthumbsconfig helper application.
It catches a random frame from 15% to 70%, checking also how contrasted is the image, and dropping bad frames.


2009-02-11 MPlayerThumbs 1.2
* Fixed build with kde 4.2 (thanks Pino Toscano)

2008-07-18 MPlayerThumbs 1.1
* Re-adding strips, and making them dynamically configurable
* Adding option to clear cache in mplayerthumbsconfig
* Optimizing the code to use an unique directory to store thumbs, to avoid
confusing thumbs for different files

2008-06-20 MPlayerThumbs 1.0
* First stable release
* Porting to KDE 4
* Refactoring code, for more stability and speed
* Also KDE 4 adds for us a free feature, random thumbnail generation on
the preview on the information toolbar on each mouseover ;)

2006-07-10 MPlayerThumbs 0.5b
* Fixed thumbnail generation when files have not an extension.
2006-07-01 MPlayerThumbs 0.5
* Adding -ao null option instead of -nosound
* Adding custom arguments configuration to mplayerthumbsconfig
* Cleaning code, removing check for local/remote files, and threating
all them as local, since kio already provides us a good support for
remote files.
* Option to add "blacklisted" extensions with mplayerthumbsconfig

 mplayerthumbs and MKV files

As matroska files (mkv) can embed the cover of a movie (or even several pictures AFAIK), it could be nice if mplayerthumbs could display such pictures instead of random ones (or maybe let the user choose the behaviour with mplayerthumbsconfig

later, activate on Dolphin.

 Great enhancement. Better using external binaries.

This is great ! But why is it listed as a "KDE video application" ? Should it be in "File browser enhancements" ?

I was originally trying to activate using external thumbnailers in KDE. MATE can do this using config files and scripts that reference the binaries in "/usr/share/thumbnailers/". But I don't think KDE can use that system. Took me ages to find your release and it works very well. Should the "mplayerthumbsconfig" be available through a button next to the entry for the plugin in "Previews" (Dolphin settings) ?

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
