       output [backend options]


       This manual page documents briefly the totem-video-thumbnailer command. This manual page
       was written for the Debian Project because  the original program does not have a manual

       totem-video-thumbnailer is used internally by GNOME applications such as nautilus to
       generate PNG thumbnails of video files. While it is possible to invoke it manually, it is
       usually done automatically by nautilus.
