rox is a amazing file manager, light, flexible and extensible, but need a bit of work, it means that certain things don't work out of the box.
here is my litle tip to make rox a bit more powerfull.

all that you need is rox-filer installed,
Code:
emerge rox
is enough, and you will need is VideoThumbnail, you can download the latest version here:

http://www.kerofin.demon.co.uk/rox/VideoThumbnail-0.1.4.tar.gz

these instructions is to install system wide, it means that resource will be avaliable for all users, but you need root access.

unpack VideoThumbnail-0.1.4.tar.gz as root move it to
Code:
/usr/local/share


open ROX go to option > Thumbnails an set "Show image thumbnails"

then run
Code:
/usr/local/share/VideoThumbnail/AppRun

and just set "Install handlers".

Enjoy

What exactly does this do again? Can you post screenshots?

Is there a way to line up icons in Rox vertically rather than horizontally?

Thanks.

I installed the VideoThumbnail plugin and it works beautifully. However Rox starts up a microsecond slower. But it bearable.

Also I wanted to install rox-clib for Diff but portage has 2.1.1 whereas the package diff requires 2.1.4 (what it said when I tried to compile Diff). I guess Rox-Clib2 is not in portage.

@affan
Code:

cd /usr/portage/rox-base/rox-clib
cp rox-clib-2.1.1.ebuild rox-clib-2.1.4.ebuild
ebuild rox-clib-2.1.4.ebuild digest
emerge -u rox-clib
