Don't forget to check your "Only thumbnail files smaller than... (size)"
settings in nautilus. This caused me endless grief like "gst-thumbnail
works when in run it from a commandline, but doesn't in nautilus". If

use gconf-editor to change it yourself (don't recall the key path atm).


p.s. Thomas: kickass presentation yesterday!
