Hi @daniel.pan

I have one error on jessie debian during the installation, linked to pip install

sudo pip install moviepy


sudo pip install pillow

Gives a verbose error (see attached log)

Do you have any alternative for installing pip pillow on debian jessie ?

the installation process was a success, except for

sudo pip install pillow

I set the thumbnail to True in, i do not see the difference.

is there any way to check if pillow is necessary ?



The video preview is turned off by default. moviepy and pillow are not needed.


is seems that Pillow was already installed, anyway…

sudo easy_install Pillow
Searching for Pillow
Best match: Pillow 2.6.1
Pillow 2.6.1 is already the active version in easy-install.pth

Using /usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages
Processing dependencies for Pillow
Finished processing dependencies for Pillow

Then i tried to activate video thumbnail to see the difference

# Enable or disable thumbnail for video
# NOTE: since version 6.1

# Use the frame at 5 second as thumbnail

# Absolute filesystem path to the directory that will hold thumbnail files.
THUMBNAIL_ROOT = '/home/cc/seafile/seahub-data/thumbnail/thumb/'

I don’t see the difference while is it activated or not.

It always displays :

a video icon in the view

a thumbnail preview

What is the suspected behaviour with On/Off ?

Just to let you know :

it seems that files created in /home/cc/seafile/seahub-data/thumbnail/thumb since i activated to video preview do not have the same rights properties than the previous ones.
