Nautilus does not automatically generate thumbnails when ffmpegthumbnailer is installed. In Gnome 2, one would add a gconf entry /desktop/gnome/thumbnailers/<mimetype> and set an ffmpegthumbnailer command. Now, one can just create a file in /usr/share/thumbnailers

Additional info:
* package version(s): ffmpegthumbnailer 2.0.6-1, nautilus

Create a user-readable (rw-r-r root root) file /usr/share/thumbnailers/ffmpeg.thumbnailer with content:

[Thumbnailer Entry]
Exec=/usr/bin/ffmpegthumbnailer -s %s -i %u -o %o -c png -f -t 10

One should probably append mime types.
This task depends upon
