video thumbnailer for the GNOME desktop
totem-video-thumbnailer [-j|--jpeg] [-l|--no-limit] [-s size] input output [backend options]
This manual page documents briefly the totem-video-thumbnailer command. This manual page was written for the Debian Project because the original program does not have a manual page. totem-video-thumbnailer is used internally by GNOME applications such as nautilus to generate PNG thumbnails of video files. While it is possible to invoke it manually, it is usually done automatically by nautilus.
input The input filename. This can be in any format that totem can play. output The output filename, output in PNG format. backend options Options to be passed to the backend (i.e. gstreamer).
-j --jpeg Switch the output format to JPEG. The default is PNG. -l --no-limit Don't limit the thumbnailing time to 30 seconds. For debugging purposes. -s size The size of the thumbnail. Example: "64x64". The default is "128x96".
