I tried to use ffmpegthumbnailer got the following error

I tried just having the filename test and still had an issue.
ffmpegthumbnailer version: 2.1.1
I have tried examples on the net and even tried to run as root. Nothing
worked. Do I need to submit a bug report?
Found the issue.
Related to SELINUX from a bug (3929) where the solution is to either
save the file in ~/.thumbnails or change the context by disabling the
thumbnail policy module.
semodule -d thumb # as root
As it turns out, ffmpeg won't make the type of thumbs I want when I try
using the ~/.thumbnails directory.
Save money, use Open Source Software.
