Hello everybody,

I've been surfing the web looking for the right place for this and I ended up 
here, on this mailing list. I hope it's the right place.

I'm using kubuntu 12.10 64-bit, and I just found out that I had to install 
ffmpegthumbs (or ffmpegthumbnailer? or kffmpegthumbnailer?) to get video preview 
icons in Dolphin. Shouldn't this package be installed by default, out of the 

I think everybody expects preview icons being working and turned on for as 
many file types as possible by default in every modern destkop environment.

Please let me know what you think about it, or if this is the wrong place for 
discussing this topic. :)
