The ffmpegthumbs-mattepaint is an alternative version of the standard KDE ffmpegthumbs.

Both the ffmpegthubs and the ffmpefthumbs-mattpaint can be installed side by side.

The ffmpegthumbs-mattepaint:

* is using the QPainter & QImage to draw the thumbnail decorations.

* is using pseudo-random number to seek the preview image (5%..95%).

* can use external images as the thumbnails.

* can use the KDE service menus to add/remove the thumbnails.

The thumbnail decorations are loaded from the image files so the user can draw own decorations.

As default the ffmpegthumbs-mattepaint is using the attched/embedded MP4/Matroska cover art for the thumbnail: https://youtu.be/iRz3aWnD21Q.

The user decides if there will be:

* a pure image thumbnail.

* a thumbnail with the blended mime icon or framed icon.

* a thumbnail with the matte picture(s).

Preview Clips:

Adding IMdb data - cover, year, genre, storyline: https://youtu.be/LbR7I21wp-4

Drag and drop thumbnails: https://youtu.be/-9jHd3F8oD4

The compilation is depending same development files as the standard ffmpegthumbs.

The error is 'file failed to open for writing (Permission denied)'.

Whas the builddir empty when tried to compile ?
What commands are you using ?
What if you remove the 'builddir' and then try with separate 'make' and 'make install' steps:

cd ffmpegthumbs-mattepaint

mkdir builddir

cd builddir && cmake .. -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=$(kf5-config --prefix) -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release -DKDE_INSTALL_USE_QT_SYS_PATHS=ON


sudo make install

The error is: 'ERROR: cmake/modules/FindKDE4Internal.cmake not found'

The Mint is Debian based ?

This module is part of kdelibs5-dev

Debian - https://packages.debian.org/search?searchon=contents&keywords=FindKDE4Internal.cmake&mode=path&suite=stable&arch=any

Ubuntu - http://packages.ubuntu.com/search?searchon=contents&keywords=FindKDE4Internal.cmake&mode=exactfilename&suite=trusty&arch=any

Do you have it installed ?

What says: 'locate FindKDE4Internal.cmake'

With the Debian based - the apt command:
'sudo apt-get build-dep ffmpegthumbs' should install the needed packages.

The http://ftp.aso.ee/debian/pool/main/f/ffmpegthumbs/ffmpegthumbs_4.14.1-1.dsc is telling: 'Build-Depends: cmake, debhelper (>= 9), kde-sc-dev-latest (>= 4:4.12), kdelibs5-dev (>= 4:4.11), libavcodec-dev, libavformat-dev, libavutil-dev, libswscale-dev, pkg-config, pkg-kde-tools (>= 0.12)'

 matroska script

 by davhubner on: Oct 29 2015

Hi, your matroska script doesn't work when there is different system language than en_US. It can be fixed by adding '--ui-language' "en_US" to mkvmerge command in mattepaint-matroska.pl

Thank you of finding the bug and the fix.

I'll add the fix, force ui translation en_US, to the next release (soonish ;) ).

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
