Install ffmpeg package¶
You need to install ffmpeg package to let the video thumbnail work correctly:
# Install ffmpeg apt-get install ffmpeg # Now we need to install some modules pip install pillow moviepy
# We need to activate the epel repos yum -y install epel-release rpm --import http://li.nux.ro/download/nux/RPM-GPG-KEY-nux.ro # Then update the repo and install ffmpeg yum -y install ffmpeg ffmpeg-devel # Now we need to install some modules pip install pillow moviepy
# Add backports repo to /etc/apt/sources.list # e.g. the following repo works (June 2017) deb http://httpredir.debian.org/debian jessie-backports main non-free deb-src http://httpredir.debian.org/debian jessie-backports main non-free # Then update the repo and install ffmpeg apt-get update apt-get install ffmpeg # Now we need to install some modules pip install pillow moviepy
Configure Seafile to create thumbnails¶
Now configure accordingly in
# Enable or disable thumbnail for video. ffmpeg and moviepy should be installed first. # For details, please refer to https://manual.seafile.com/deploy/video_thumbnails.html # NOTE: since version 6.1 ENABLE_VIDEO_THUMBNAIL = True # Use the frame at 5 second as thumbnail THUMBNAIL_VIDEO_FRAME_TIME = 5 # Absolute filesystem path to the directory that will hold thumbnail files. THUMBNAIL_ROOT = '/haiwen/seahub-data/thumbnail/thumb/'
