I've tried and tried again but Windows hates me, so, fuck Windows. I have a feeling it will be even worse when Windows 8 comes around. I've formatted my drives and gone 100% Linux.
Now, it took me about three days of Googling to get things working as I wanted in Ubuntu. I don't know why some of this stuff doesn't come pre install, but after a ton of research I think its working pretty great! Except a few small bugs.
I tend to set up my computer for multimedia, so yeah porn videos. It is awesome that you can use VLC or Movie Player to save a screen shot. Then under properties use that shot as the default thumbnail for the actual video file.
Anyhow, in Nautilus it's driving me nuts that there seems to be a massive gap between thumbs. Using icons view at maximum scale it only shows one thumb per horizontal line, three at medium. See the screenshots below:
For now I'm just using List view at max scale but it sort of sucks. Is there any way to get rid of that gap / padding? Perhaps a better file browser? Any info would be appreciated.
Would also be great if I could hide the file names and just see the thumbs.. :/
