    I test it with thunar. Maybe you are using nautilus and nautilus detects that it isn't a video.

    If that movie is the only one with that problem you can try this:

    Code:
    imdb-thumbnailer --set /path/to/the/movie.avi "http://ia.media-imdb.com/images/M/MV5BNjMxMjYxODk3OV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwNjA1NDAzMQ@@._V1._SX99_SY140_.jpg"
    Replace /path/to/the/movie.avi with the real path to the movie.

    Ok, can you try this:

    Code:
    bash -x imdb-thumbnailer "file://full_path_to_video.avi" ~/Desktop/test.png &> ~/Desktop/info.txt
    Replace "full_path_to_video.avi" with some film that isn't giving the right cover, it has to end looking something like this:
    Code:
    "file:///home/your_user/Films/movie.avi"
    Two files should be created in your desktop: test.png (the wrong cover) and info.txt

    Can you post the content of info.txt or to attach the file?

    You need to put three slashes after "file:" like this:
    Code:
    file:///media/mulo/Incoming/The Truman Show (1998).avi
    It seems that you used only two:
    Code:
    file://media/mulo/Incoming/The Truman Show (1998).avi

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

    Ok, I think I know what the problem is.

    Do this:
    Code:
    sudo gedit /usr/bin/imdb-thumbnailer
    Line 421 should look something like this:
    Code:
    		search_term=$(echo "${SOURCE_input##*/}" | sed -e 's/[cC][dD][1-9]//' -e 's/[\(][1-9][oO][fF][1-9][\)]//' -e 's/[1-9][oO][fF][1-9]//' -e 's/[_-\.]/ /g' -e 's\....$\\' -e 's/ /+/g' -e 's/(/%28/g' -e 's/)/%29/g')
    Replace that line with this:
    Code:
    		search_term=$(echo "${SOURCE_input##*/}" | sed -e 's/[cC][dD][1-9]//' -e 's/[\(][1-9][oO][fF][1-9][\)]//' -e 's/[1-9][oO][fF][1-9]//' -e 's/[_-.]/ /g' -e 's\....$\\' -e 's/ /+/g' -e 's/(/%28/g' -e 's/)/%29/g')
    Now try:
    Code:
    imdb-thumbnailer -u some/film.avi
    Does it work now?

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

    mmm... can you try the following:

    Replace line 421 with this:
    Code:
    search_term=${SOURCE_input##*/} search_term=${search_term%.*} search_term=${search_term// /+}
    Again:
    Code:
    imdb-thumbnailer -u some/film.avi
    That should work, I have replaced sed completely. The strange thing is that it is working perfectly on my system, thats why I can test it my self.

    If for some reason that neither work, can you do this again:
    Code:
    bash -x imdb-thumbnailer "file:///media/mulo/Incoming/The Truman Show (1998).avi" ~/Desktop/test.png &> ~/Desktop/info.txt
