pdf preview in nautilus

I like the preview feature of nautilus, but I have some folders with
a lot of pdfs and the preview just gets in the way there. Is there a way
to disable preview for everything, except for videos and images?

Yes, check the gconf-editor.

I don't remember where exactly this option is hidden - and it is well hidden, but it's just a matter of clicking some options in the gconf-editor.

That's where you also get rid of "Trash" icons on the destkop - just to mention it.
