Description: After the recent update of x264 to version 3:0.159.r2991.1771b55-1 and ffmpeg to version 1:4.2.2-1 ffmpegthumbnailer-2.2.2-1 stopped working. It does not generate thumbnails for newly added video files any more, instead ~/.cache/thumbnails/fail/gnome-thumbnail-factory/ fills out with .png files (Using Nautilus file manager btw.). If I remove the aforementioned files and downgrade x264/ffmpeg to versions x264-3:0.157.r2980.34c06d1-2 and ffmpeg-1:4.2.1-4, ffmpegthumbnailer starts working again as it should.

Additional info:
* package version(s)
* config and/or log files etc.
* link to upstream bug report, if any

Steps to reproduce:
This task depends upon

The same for me in manjaro.

Same here with manjaro too.
Deleting thumbnails in cache doesn't help (it worsens).

i'm still in Version 1:4.2.2-1 manjaro (stable).
But it's good news that the next version fix the issue.
