[Bug 51024] Konqueror thumbnail generation fails on video files (mjpg)

Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: libarts1-xine

When trying to open a directory in konqueror where are stored files from
a digital kamera, thumbnail creation crashes after the first video file
(only tested with motion jpeg avi files). It means other jpeg files
won't get a thumbnail...

If I remove libarts1-xine then, all thumbnails are generated except video files. 
I finally found the solution by installing libarts1-xine AND libxine-extracodecs. With these extra codecs, thumbnails are also generated for video files...

Note: this bug also cause troubles for softwares which use konqueror thumbnails like digikam. See :
