[KPhotoAlbum] Using KPA with videos

I use it with my videos. The only problem I face it that regard is that kpa uses the phonon subsystem for showing the videos, and it often find myself struggling with what packages my kubuntu must have for it to show them. I'm not really sure what the state is today, but in the past I needed mplayerthumbs to see thumbnails of the videos

Cheers Jesper

Quite awhile ago, I saw some discussion on the list about configuring video "thumbnails", but I didn't follow it very closely because I wasn't ready to deal with videos at that point.
