[Tutor] write a movie file thumbnail in Linux...

Hi all,

Nautilus does it when I browse to a directory that contains images and
movie files created with my digital camera.  I see thumbnails of the
image (jpeg) and the movie (mov) files.

I use python to process (rename, make reduced resolution copies (PIL))
of my image files.  I'd like to also have my python script make those
cool thumbnails of the movie files, too.

Anybody have recommendations for how to do this with Python or other
Linux command line tools?

Thanks in advance,
