More Info:

 MPlayerThumbs is a video thumbnail generator for
KDE file managers (Konqueror, Dolphin, ...) , now
available also for KDE 4.
It needs mplayer (of course) to generate
thumbnails, and it contains no linking to any
library, so in a x86_64 system you can freely use
the 32bit mplayer binary with win32codecs by
configuring the application launching the
mplayerthumbsconfig helper application.
It catches a random frame from 15% to 70%,
checking also how contrasted is the image, and
dropping bad frames.
