    I don't know much about proxies. imdb-thumbnailer uses wget, I did a search in google and I found this

    I theory you have to do the following:
    Code:
    sudo gedit $(which imdb-thumbnailer)
    After the first line add:
    Code:
    export http_proxy="http://username:password@proxy.example.com:8080"
    You have to reemplace username password port etc with your settings.

    Then do a search for wget, there should be 3 matches.
    For every match you have to add "-proxy=on" after wget.
    For example this:
    Code:
    wget -U firefox -qO - "http://www.google.com... etc
    Must be changed to this:
    Code:
    wget -proxy=on -U firefox -qO - "http://www.google.ccom... etc

    Re: Howto: Movie covers as video thumbnails (hack) (it works for books too)

    Does anyone have imdb-thumbnailer working in 11.10? I had it working fine in 11.04 and decided to do a clean install. But nothing I do seems to get it to work - I only have the stock gnome thumbnails

    any advice would be much appreciated

    thank you

    So you have the standard video frame thumbnails, I think the problem is the new nautilus using dconf instead of gconf. I will take a look.

    I think this should work:
    Code:
    sudo gedit /usr/share/thumbnailers/imdb.thumbnailer
    Paste this text and save the file:
    Code:
    [Thumbnailer Entry]
    TryExec=/usr/bin/imdb-thumbnailer
    Exec=/usr/bin/imdb-thumbnailer -s %s %u %o
    MimeType=application/mxf;application/ogg;application/ram;application/sdp;application/vnd.ms-wpl;application/vnd.rn-realmedia;application/x-extension-m4a;application/x-extension-mp4;application/x-flash-video;application/x-matroska;application/x-netshow-channel;application/x-ogg;application/x-quicktimeplayer;application/x-shorten;image/vnd.rn-realpix;image/x-pict;misc/ultravox;text/x-google-video-pointer;video/3gpp;video/dv;video/fli;video/flv;video/mp2t;video/mp4;video/mp4v-es;video/mpeg;video/msvideo;video/ogg;video/quicktime;video/vivo;video/vnd.divx;video/vnd.rn-realvideo;video/vnd.vivo;video/webm;video/x-anim;video/x-avi;video/x-flc;video/x-fli;video/x-flic;video/x-flv;video/x-m4v;video/x-matroska;video/x-mpeg;video/x-ms-asf;video/x-ms-asx;video/x-msvideo;video/x-ms-wm;video/x-ms-wmv;video/x-ms-wmx;video/x-ms-wvx;video/x-nsv;video/x-ogm+ogg;video/x-theora+ogg;video/x-totem-stream;audio/x-pn-realaudio;audio/3gpp;audio/ac3;audio/AMR;audio/AMR-WB;audio/basic;audio/midi;audio/mp2;audio/mp4;audio/mpeg;audio/ogg;audio/prs.sid;audio/vnd.rn-realaudio;audio/x-aiff;audio/x-ape;audio/x-flac;audio/x-gsm;audio/x-it;audio/x-m4a;audio/x-matroska;audio/x-mod;audio/x-mp3;audio/x-mpeg;audio/x-ms-asf;audio/x-ms-asx;audio/x-ms-wax;audio/x-ms-wma;audio/x-musepack;audio/x-pn-aiff;audio/x-pn-au;audio/x-pn-wav;audio/x-pn-windows-acm;audio/x-realaudio;audio/x-real-audio;audio/x-sbc;audio/x-speex;audio/x-tta;audio/x-wav;audio/x-wavpack;audio/x-vorbis;audio/x-vorbis+ogg;audio/x-xm;application/x-flac;
    Now do:
    Code:
    mv /usr/share/thumbnailers/totem.thumbnailer /usr/share/thumbnailers/totem.thumbnailer.back
    nautilus -q
    Please let me know if it works.

    Re: Howto: Movie covers as video thumbnails (hack) (it works for books too)

    That seems to have fixed it Yuzem - thank you very much indeed

    I needed to remove all movies and re-add them using -r and -u and all seems to be good now - my Films' folder looks great again

    thank you

    I spoke too soon

    A few thumbs updated with covers so I left it thinking that they will all update

    I came back a while later, applied an update and the thumbs had reverted to the Totem thumbs

    I checked the changes you suggested and they are still present

    It seems the folder ~/.thumbnails/fail/gnome-thumbnail-factory is full

    The ~/.gconf/desktop/gnome/thumbnailers entries are still there - should I remove them?

    Any further ideas?

    I believe there is no need to remove them.

    Try this:
    Code:
    rm -r ~/.thumbnails/fail
    imdb-thumbnailer -r some-video.avi
    imdb-thumbnailer -u some-video.avi
    If that doesn't work you can check if the thumbnailer is being used:
    Code:
    gedit .imdb-thumbnailer/config
    And add this somewhere:
    Code:
    zenity --info
    Then do an -r and -u on some video and see if a dialog pops before the thumbnail is made, if it does, then the thumbnailer is working, maybe you don't have the path added in the config file for that folder.
