    Is there some special ritual or rite of passage I need to invoke to get the video preview to work in Ubuntu (8.10). I installed Kaffiene, and the videos I have play fine in that and all other media players. I have video preview enabled and the files are named correctly (as far as I can tell, romname.avi right?) but when I click on "video" I get nothing. No error or anything, it's as if it's not even trying.

    Any search on google just gives me myself, asking this question.
