You have to enable previews of video files.

In the "General" section, "Previews" tab check: "Video Files".  Also 
note the general file size limit at the bottom of the page.  IIUC, 
increasing this to the maximum does not take up more memory, but simply 
takes more time to process the thumbs (but only once for each thumb).

This is working on my system (4.3.3).  I have thumbs for files which are 
dated 10/21/09.
