Drupal Hell: Video thumbs not generatingNov 26th, 2012 | By admin | Category: Internet
Well this was a good one, and the solution is insanely easy and simple. Go and check the path to ffmpeg in your video transcoder setting. When transfering over from my old server the path was /usr/local/bin/ffmpeg (bsd) and on my current debian server it is /usr/bin/ffmpeg so yeeeaaaa that will screw you up something fierce.
Now the main problem I’m facing currently is how do I generate all the missing thumbs for the previously uploaded videos. I created a ticket here asking or help: http://drupal.org/node/1851134 so monitor that an there is a patch already to do thsi but it was written in 2008 so I’m a bit wary of using it. If you are braver than I you can find it here: http://drupal.org/node/234084
