Im using Ubuntu 11.04. In Elementary nautilus, I can preview a music thumbnail by hover the mouse cursor on it. But I cant do it with the video files. I've set "Only for the files smaller than : 100MB" in Preferences/Preview but nothing changed. Please help!

I got it already. But I want to preview the video by hovering on it too. Is there anyway else? –  quangtruong1985 Jul 27 '11 at 5:49
    
There's no such thing like that that i know of, only Gloobus preview plays video previews, the default nautilus preview only plays audio on hoverig not video. –  Uri Herrera Jul 27 '11 at 9:52
    
Thanks. Wait for that feature. Hope it soon. –  quangtruong1985 Jul 27 '11 at 10:11
    
on Nautilus elementary never as it's not being developed anymore, should probably wait for Nautilus 3 to add that. –  Uri Herrera Jul 27 '11 at 16:09

Previewing video like that is not possible on nautilus - at least not yet.

By the way, for the part with the music thumbnail : it is possible on both standard nautilus and elementary one, not just on nautilus elementary

If you're using nautilus elementary, you can try gloobus.
