[SOLVED] Nautilus video thumbnail generation

My nautilus is not showing .mp4 video thumbnails (or any other video).

I have installed Nautilus from AUR:

nautilus-typeahead  3.34.2-1

I have also installed

ffmpeg ffmpegthumbnailer vlc gst-libav

The thumbnails do get generated in pacmanfm, but not nautilus..

Any ideas please?

Thank you.

UPDATE: nautilus 3.34.2-1 does not generate thumbnails either (from the extra repository)

Re: [SOLVED] Nautilus video thumbnail generation

New ffmpeg 1:4.2.2-2 fixed the issue for me.

Re: [SOLVED] Nautilus video thumbnail generation

I installed it but it did not solve the issue..

UPDATE: it fixes it for newly downloaded videos. For existing ones, you will have to generate the thumbnails manually..

Delete the thumbnail-cache.
