A workaround I found is to fall back to totem-video-thumbnailer:

apt-get install totem
apt-get remove ffmpegthumbnailer
killall caja

Changed in ubuntu-mate:
status: New → Invalid

 What does invalid mean and why do all my bugs sit out there for six months and then get changed to that? This is a real problem and all you're going to do is say that it's invalid and not tell me any reason why or any other information I just have to continue to deal with it? Why do I even bother?
