Ubuntu – Can’t display the thumbnails of HEVC Main10P and VP9 codec video


I hate totem player, it is useless to me, so I installed the ffmpegthumbnailer, removed totem player, and changed the default thumbnailer to it by following steps.

sudo apt-get install ffmpeg ffmpegthumbnailer gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg

Then deleted thumbnail cache:

rm ~/.thumbnails/fail/gnome-thumbnail-factory/*
rm ~/.thumbnails/normal/*

I then made a change in /usr/share/thumbnailers/totem.thumbnailer

from this:

[Thumbnailer Entry]
Exec=/usr/bin/totem-video-thumbnailer -s %s %u %o

to this:

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

But it can't generate the thumbnails from HEVC Main10P and VP9 codec videos, what should I do?

I have found the answer, I need to install the newer version of ffmpegthumbnailer and libffmpegthumbnailer4.


Just download them and install.
