I can't generate thumbnails for videos with the help of ffmpegthumbnailer inside thunar. I don't use the whole Xfce environment, only openbox with some xfce-components like thunar and others.
Generating thumbs inside the terminal (ffmpegthumbnailer -i example.mpg -o example.png) works though.
I tried to recompile thunar and ffmpegthumbnailer, but without success. I also deleted the .thumbnails folder.
In another installation I got it to work once, that was thunar running inside a full GNOME installation, but I tried to reproduce this, and when I tried it in another freshly installed GNOME installation it did not work again.

I have several installations with openbox with this issue, here is the emerge --info of one of them:

USE-flags for thumar are: dbus hal pcre trash-plugin doc exif gnome
ffmpeg: 3dnow 3dnowext X alsa encode hardcoded-tables ipv6 jpeg2k mmx mmxext mp3 sdl ssse3 theora vorbis x264 zlib
ffmpegthumbnailer USE-flags are of course the default ones, since it does not make sense to remove them.

I found that one in the forum
but apparently this is about some other issue, since it was not even working from the terminal.

Any clues?
