Ah, I figured it out. It was only triggering when editing was started from the article view (in which case TMH was already loaded), whereas in most of my testing I was reloading at the action=edit page, with no TMH loaded. I can now reliably trigger it. :D

brion added a comment to T198103: specifying image size to videos with thumbnail on English Wikipedia breaks the preview of the video .

Yeah, looks like the old-style mwembed player in TMH is getting confused about the parsoid-style markup and is ending up with a zero-size widget. Do y'all prefer that I try to fix the frontend to work with that markup, or leave it to to changing which markup is used (T154844)?

(I do see that the thumbnail changes on the example taken from the referenced article; it looks like the 'thumbtime' parameter is not being passed through when the thumbnail is reloaded, so it gets the default time.)

Thanks! Unfortunately it looks like 3.2 doesn't include support for the option. We'll either need to update to 3.3 or 3.4 or add in a backport of https://github.com/FFmpeg/FFmpeg/commit/734d760e2fb2621040edef3536b5935e7bc45351 which might be easier.

Note that this should eliminate or reduce the encoding-time penalty on VP9 by letting us use more threads per conversion. This is particularly important for very long videos at high resolution (conference talks and such), where otherwise we might run past the time limits on the total encoding.

This may be an issue with inconsistent versions of poppler-utils/pdfinfo installed, maybe? In local testing that with poppler 0.48.0 in Debian Stretch, it looks like the -meta (metadata) and -l 999999 (give sizes for pages up to 999999) seem to be at odds.

The thumbtime parameter only seems to apply in wiki it's used on, so ideally we'd need some way to define the default thumb within the file page.

Is there a problem preventing using still images from videos, specifically, or is there another reason y'all are trying to blacklist videos? And is it just videos or anything with extra parameters? Does this affect PDF, TIFF, and DjVu files with multiple pages, for instance, or SVG files rendered with a particular language?
