video thumbnail/preview on KDE5 dolphin

Post#1 by ofsha » 05 Feb 2017, 12:50

I need video preview/thubnails on dolphin, not just for photos.
It was working OK on porteus 3.1 kde4 and 3.2.2 MATE caja showing video thumbs "out of box"
but i like to try the new kde5.

i managed to make an ffmpegthumbs-16.12.1-1-i686.xzm
with the help of xz2txz and txz2xzm
and it really added the correct option for video file on dolphin settings
control >> configure >> general >> previews
but no avail :(

any one can help with that matter?

Welcome to Porteus. I'm sure there is someone here with experience of video thumbnails. Please bear with us. :)

I'm using this wonderfull OS since SLAX5 era.
Forced to update to 3.2.2 after upgrading my laptop to a X6 one.
Using 64bit MATE until i figure out few issues with the KDE5 version,
this is one of them.... :wall:

Thank for your reply.

i suspect you need to compile ffmpegthumbs source against ffmpeg present in porteus..
for this you need the devel module and the source : http://download.kde.org/stable/applicat ... 2.1.tar.xz

Hi ncmprhnsbl,
Thanks for your attention, but I'm afraid this is over my skills :(

trying to compile the source you provided with cmake
but getting this error:

Code: Select all

See also "/home/guest/Downloads/ffmpegthumbs-16.12.1/build/CMakeFiles/CMakeOutput.log".               
Can you (or anyone) point me to the right direction?

HI Bogomips,

The devel.xzm is in place with the rest of the core modules.
I think the cmake is calling for an Extra CMake packages/modules but cant find them
and i dont know where they are/should be

Code: Select all

find_package(ECM 1.0.0 REQUIRED NO_MODULE)
set(CMAKE_MODULE_PATH ${ECM_MODULE_PATH} ${ECM_KDE_MODULE_DIR} ${CMAKE_CURRENT_SOURCE_DIR}/cmake)

Maybe search via USM for a package called
extra-cmake-modules
32 Bit --> extra-cmake-modules-5.26.0-i486-1_slonly.txz

I downloaded an install this module via USM and got to a missing QT5 library error, installed it and got to a KF5 problem :shout:

Hi ofsha

The modules mentioned in the link:
dolphin-plugins and kdegraphics-thumbnailers,
are available (newer versions of course) at
http://alien.slackbook.org/ktown/14.2/5/
in ./kde/applications

But i don't know if that's what you need
I'm relying here on wread

@wread
I'm happy to hear your kde5 is showing video thumbs. :Bravo:
Did it work 'out of the box' or you added/changed speciphic xzm?
If so, Can you please tell me how you did it?

@ofsha

I use dolphin-16.12.3, dolphin-plugins-16.12.3 and ffmpegthumbs-16.12.3, all in x86-64-1alien.xzm version.

I must say my KDE5 is not the official version; maybe you should try to find out if you are missing dependencies...

Try ldd /usr/bin/dolphin | grep found

Good luck!
