I was not able to make cheese work on Fedora 26 (4.15.15-200.fc26.x86_64), so I used GTK UVC Video Viewer instead. Install by dnf install guvcview.

I found that the default maximum file size for generating previews was 1 MB on my system. Since many videos are bigger than that, I wasn't getting thumbnails for them. To solve this problem, go into the file manager, Edit> Preferences> Preview> Change "Only for files smaller than" to something bigger.

I was able to solve a similar problem by changing PCI Latency Timer from 32 clocks to 64 clocks in BIOS. I am using an MSI GP60 with Fedora 25 installed. The system would freeze completely and respond only to holding the power button down. It has not frozen since this BIOS change. I tried making other BIOS changes as well, but I have reverted them.

I had problems with Fedora 25 freezing on an MSI GP60 with an Nvidia GeForce GT 740M. I solved it by going in BIOS and changing PCI Latency Timer from 32 clocks to 64 clocks. I tried other things as well, like disabling speed step, but I've reverted everything but the latency timer change now.
