| * My vids have no thumbnails (well, it has, but they are all the same,
| the default one), so it's almost impossible to know what it is without
| opening it
| * To open it, the only way I found is to "invoke an external program"
| (totem, for me)
Thumbnails should work, if you install 

showing the videos in the player should work if you got the right stuff 
installed in KDE - no idea what "right" is though.

| So, what I'd like KPA to be able to do is :
| * If I double-click on a video thumbnail, open a defined viewer (maybe
| a config window to define the external prog to use would do the trick
| without a lot of efforts ?)
| * Display a generated thumbnail for each video => for this, under
| gnome (I don't know KDE very well, sorry), this is automatic for any
| video. (Technically, this is achieved by using the little binary
| gnome-video-thumbnailer for thumbnailing in nautilus view e.g.)
| My question is : is this already possible (or partly) and so my conf
| is just not the right one, or is it in the roadmap ?
| Thanks a lot.
