Configure thumbnails for video files in nextcloud

Nextcloud use ffmpeg to generate thumbnails from video files, so you need to install ffmpeg on your server first:

sudo apt install ffmpeg

Now configure nextcloud. Open configuration file /config/config.php and add this lines:

'enable_previews' => true,
'enabledPreviewProviders' => array (
        0 => 'OC\\Preview\\Image',
        1 => 'OC\\Preview\\Movie',
        2 => 'OC\\Preview\\TXT',

That’s all, it is very simple 😉
