OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Lost Video Thumbnail Preview In Dolphin

Mar 28, 2010

After I manually installed multimedia codecs, like w32codecall, I got Linux to play movies and I also got thumbnail previews of them in Dolphin. However, I noticed that recently Dolphin doesn't display my thumbnails anymore. I don't quite recall whether the any video player could use my installed codecs, at least xine works. The only thing that could have caused that is actually the automatic system updates I received. I still have my multimedia codecs installed, but Dolphin doesn't show the movie previews anymore.

Software :: Preview / Thumbnail / Screenshot Generator Of A Video File

Feb 27, 2009

I have some videos I am looking to share and post to a couple of places. I am looking to preview to the potential downloaders the file quality, plus some statistical info. In Windows Media Players Classic, as shown in my example here, you have the length of the video, file size, file name... and in each frame preview you have a time stamp stating at what part of the video the from is there a program in linux that can do this for me? That can generate the same (or maybe more) info automatically?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Cannot Preview Black Screen / Could Not Generate Thumbnail?

Oct 3, 2010

At some point after one of the many updates I do to my system, I seem to have lost the ability to preview myself on cam. Simply put, software like CamStream and Cheese just give me a black screen when I open it up. So, I cant see how I look on cam and what's in or out of the shot. If I tell Cheese or Camstream to capture a still, there is no problem. In fact, that is the only way I can determine what the camera is seeing of me and my background.

The only "solution" is to either have Cheese takke my pic and determine from there (as just mentioned), or go on a video chat room and have it use my camera to give me a real-time look at what the camera is aimed to. As someone who creates webcam videos for upload, and sometimes needs to move the camera while still live, this is not convenient so I hope to fix it.

Here are the command line outputs Im getting:


** (cheese:3704): WARNING **: could not generate thumbnail for /home/lixen69y2k/Webcam/2010-08-25-101226.ogv (video/ogg)
** (cheese:3704): WARNING **: Icon 'video-ogg' not present in theme

W: CamStream version 0.27 starting.
>> void CCamStreamApp::ReadConfigFile()
<< void CCamStreamApp::ReadConfigFile()

Could not grab image (select timeout): Resource temporarily unavailable.Seems that GUVCview gives me the best articulation of what the problem is. I have both a built-in webcam for my laptop as well as a USB one. Both seem to have this problem so I know its a case of some part of my software being the trouble.

OpenSUSE :: Image Preview Broken In Dolphin And Konqueror

Jul 28, 2010

Since I upgraded to 11.3 I don't see that the View > Preview mode is broken. Image icons are created, but they all look like the icons in the picture below. When I move the zoom slider the largest sized icons come out fine. Anyone an idea how to solve this problem? Is there any repository that I can use to get more recent versions that should have fixed these bugs? I just noticed that PNG images come out right, so it could be something related to JPG files.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Video Files Won't Play And Dolphin Keeps Closing

Jun 17, 2010

Whenever I go into the folders they're stored in and try to open them. They close so fast, in fact, that it's only after switching over to Konqueror that I found the files simply will not open. VLC/Kaffeine appears to load for a few seconds and then closes again without any indication of a bug or problem - it just doesn't work.

Been trying to sort this out for the last two days now, but I'm a complete simpleton with computers/linux and don't know anything about using the terminal, etc. (I can't even install stuff without using webpins) but now I'm stuck and searching around for people with similar problems really hasn't turned up anything that is familiar or understandable.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Lost Amongst The Video Format Maze?

Aug 28, 2011

On inspection I find that my collection of video files is a mixture of .flv and .mp4 formats. The latter play OK on my A110 network media player but the latter do not. There is no sound from either but I think that is another problem as VLC works well on all of them.

My question assuming I cannot get the media player to play .flv files is should I convert to mp4 and will the HD files suffer as a result? If it is OK to convert, which program to use. My system is openSUSE 11.4 with KDE desktop.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No Video Preview Icon / Get That?

Jul 19, 2010

I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 and my problem is with this one video the preview icon in nautilus will not load for me. It's encoded the same as the other 120 videos on the drive and plays just fine in totem. I copied the video from another drive and the preview icon for the video is present on it. Just seems like it's not even attempting to create a preview icon, is there a way of making it?

Slackware :: Disabling KDE Dolphin Preview And Kio_thumbnail

Oct 3, 2010

Hi everybody! I am completely stumped with KDE's Dolphin's preview policy. It started with me realizing that when as much as I mouse over an encrypted file (say, an ODS file created and encrypted with OpenOffice), KDE pops up a password prompt. The culprit identifies itself as kio_thumbnail. This is a feature so apparently useless, I would like to disable it no matter what. I know a work-around: hiding the Information panel seems to work. But I like the information panel. On top of that, the same kio_thumbnail does on occasion decide that my computer is underutilized (it feels like it happens during the idle times). It allocates my entire RAM, all 4 GiB of it, and does something fancy. It doesn't crash, however, and goes away a few minutes after I poke the computer.

I don't want a daemonized thumbnailer, is there a way to disable kio_thumbnail or make it be quiet and do nothing? I tried fooling around with Dolphin. I went into Settings / Configure Dolphin... and

1. Disabled all services,
2. Unchecked everything in General / Previews.

I did the same to Konqueror.

As far as I can tell, this had no effect whatsoever. Dolphin still previews all the files it previewed before, and still tries to preview encrypted files when Information panel is open. I am running unmodified Dolphin 1.4 on KDE 4.4.3, the same ones that came with Slackware 13.1 x64.

OpenSUSE :: Nautilus Image/video/pdf/html Preview Failing

Apr 18, 2010

I don't how long is has been happening for (I've just upgraded my old computer, so it is now my faster and better machinig), but Nautilus is failing to create thumbnails for anything other than text files.

I've swapped the settings around to try to trigger changes, but even on "Local only" or "Always" with a 10MB cap then Nautilus won't generate previews for anything other than text files. All images/videos/pdfs/web pages that should have thumbnails generated for them have the "pending" icon but never generate a thumbnail. If, however, I open the file (with Eye of Gnome or Gimp) and refresh the folder then the thumbnail appears for the one file I just opened (so I could go through and preview all images, but I'd really rather not!)

I've tried removing/renaming my .local/share/mime folder in case it was incorrectly handling file types, but that didn't help. I've looked in gconf at the thumbnailer apps, but that appears to be for everything except images. Running "evince-thumbnailer" on its own works fine as well and generates an image. There aren't any related errors in .xsession-errors, and I don't know where else Nautilus logs to (running "nautilus --browser" creates a browser window but then drops back to the command line and doesn't print any output).

I'm using openSUSE 11.2 and the default Gnome, with codecs from Packman. A fairly similar setup on my other machine is thumbnailing perfectly fine.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Edited Xorg.conf And Lost All Video?

May 3, 2011

I have Natty Narwhal and everything was working. Then I moved it to my HDTV, and I had overscan issues. Following some advice I found online, I edited /etc/X11/xorg.conf with new information including a ModeLine.

Upon restart, I get my BIOS screen, the Ubuntu splash, then... nothing. The display goes to sleep. I can ping the computer, and everything seems to work except I have no video.

I did backup my xorg.conf file, but I don't know how to get to it without a display. Hindsight tells me I should have given myself a way to remotely control my computer before messing with xorg, but you live and learn.

I've read online that there is a way from the login screen to get to Terminal without loading the desktop environment, but I can't get to the login screen.

I've also tried using a Linux LiveCD to access my filesystem, and that works to view files, but I have no root privileges.

Is there...

...a way to get to Terminal without loading the login screen?

...a way to give myself root access to my harddrive from a LiveCD?

...something else to try?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Lost Video Sync Connection At Login (gdm Start)

Jan 23, 2011

I recently purchased a new motherboard and processor to replace an existing system. I transferred the video card. OS remains the same, Ubuntu 10.10 x64. Video worked fine in the first system (eVGA motherboard, Intel E6600 CPU, 4GB RAM), but the old motherboard had a SATA controller issue. New system: Gigabyte GA-890FXA-UD5, AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb, 8GB RAM

Transferred hardware:
Graphics: eVGA nVidia 8800GT,
Monitor 0: Hanns-G JW199D 1440x900@60Hz
Monitor 1: Gateway FPD1975W 1440x900@60Hz

The Problem:

1. Fresh OS install, everything starts up as expected, login, etc.
2. I use the Additional Drivers link from the menu and select the recommended nVidia driver and enable it.
3. After reboot, the following things happen:
3a. BIOS
3b. Ubuntu startup scripts
3c. Ubuntu logo with spinning dots
3d. Monitor goes black
3e. Monitor notifies it has lost sync

I believe 3d is where I would normally get the login dialog. I can use failsafe mode, but everything I've tried to fix the graphics display hasn't worked. I've even tried to load the latest nVidia driver, nvidia-config, nvidia-settings, etc. There are some options I've tried where the nvidia-x command returns "can't find device". I've tried to modify the xorg.conf file, to no success.

Any ideas what I can do to resolve the error? I'm not that strong on the xorg.conf file, but all I've read is that it's not too necessary anymore. Though, it was modified in my old system to get Twinview working. I've looked through a bunch of log files, but I may not have been looking in the correct log file.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Mkv In Smplayer Freezes Video While Scrolling - In Vlc No Video At All

Problem is very similar to: Problems playing mkv HD films in opensuse but not windows but with enough differences that I start a new thread:

* playback in VLC does not work -- there is only sound

* playback in SMplayer works, however -- when I scroll forward, the video freezes and sound continues, to unfreeze video I have scroll a tiny bit backward

I tried changing the video ouput driver (in SMplayer) from xv to xv/noveu-nvidia, it didn't help. Please note, that I use the same settings (initially) as before in OS11.1.
