Having additional mime types doesn't hurt. Restricting to the mime types
you install thumbnailers for looks wrong to me.

Basically all supported GNOME thumbnailers. I doubt that there's a
complete list of these. Nevertheless installing a video thumbnailer
won't hurt. Thunar will use that instead of the GNOME fallback.
