strange media issues...

Thanks in advance for whatever help you may be able to offer. I'm having some very weird media issues with KDE 3.4 on my Gentoo box (1 of 2 of them). First of all, there are no thumbnails for any media, documents, or anything, period. I have searched exhaustively and found no viable solution, I do not have crossover installed, etc. I have previews enabled, and all of that good stuff - they simply don't show up, or show up as blank, your preference. It clearly attempts to make the previews - it's just that it doesn't go so well. Furthermore, when I try to watch any kind of video files, it tries to load them and then just plays the sound. I am frankly exasperated on this issue... any advice you might have would be excellent. thanks--
