Nautilus does not thumbnail .flv files after the upgrade of shared-mime-info from 0.23 to 0.40 and the subsequent downgrade from 0.40 to 0.30. The same bug has been reported for shared-mime-info 0.30 on debian (

What I have found is that .flv files have the mime type video/x-flv when shared-mime-info 0.30 or 0.40 is installed but there is no equivalent gnome thumbnailer (gconf-editor lists application/x-flash-video and video/flv under desktop/gnome/thumbnailers). Fixed the problem here by installing a new thumbnailer schema for video/x-flv (as attached).

Additional info:
* shared-mime-info 0.30.1
* nautilus 2.22.3-1

Steps to reproduce: Clear out ~/.thumbnails, navigate to a directory containing .flv files with nautilus and then watch what happens.
This task depends upon

Created Let's see if I've assigned it in the right place.

The resolution from gnome is that this is a totem problem and that it is already fixed in totem 2.23.4.

* data/mime-type-list.txt: Add video/x-flv as a support mime-type

So I/we just need to wait.
