Nautilus does not generate video thumbnails properly. Renaming the ffmpegthumbnailer.desktop in /usr/share/thumbnailers to ffmpeg.thumbnailer fixes it for me. That seems to be proper way to name the launchers anyway (e.g. evince.thumbnailer, gnome-font-viewer.thumbnailer).

Additional info:
* ffmpegthumbnailer-2.0.7-1
* nautilus-3.2.1-1

Steps to reproduce:
1. Install ffmpegthumbnailer
2. Start nautilus and see that no video thumbnails are generated
3. Rename ffmpegthumbnailer.desktop
4. Restart nautilus
5. Thumbnails work again
This task depends upon

Reason for closing:  Implemented
Additional comments about closing:  I'd consider this a nautilus issue but I implemented it anyway in 2.0.7-4 (though with a slightly different name, suppose that it should still work but please re-open if it does not as I don't use nautilus)
