Ok i am still having problems with thumbnails, i have posted my problem on the Shark007 forum but to no reply and if anybody can help me on here i would appriecate it, below is what i have tried...
Ok Shark, wondering if you could help me, im tearing my hair out..
I know you have answered the question on .flv and .mkv thumbnails so many times so forgive me but i have looked in every thread on this forum to try and solve my problem, most of the time your response is to 'Use FFDshow's codec in the H264 TAB' which seems to have worked for everyone but me...here is what i have done
- Formatted HDD
- Installed fresh Windows
7 64-bit Home Premium
- Installed ATI Catalyst drivers
- Installed all windows updates
- Installed X86 codec pack
- Installed X64 codec pack
Opened music video folder in explorer and watched thumbnails generate (every thumbnail generates apart from all .flv files and only a couple of .mkv files)
I've tried many different combinations of settings
- Going in the H264 tab and enabled FFDShow with multithreading
- Enabling 'Use FFDShow codec' under H264 codec in directshow players (generated black thumbnail)
- Going into the 'Swap' tab and enabling FFDShow for MPEG2 (didn't work)
-Tried enabling the suggested settings
-Tried resetting all settings
When amending the settings above i go into the x64 application
as administrator - make the change - exit, then go back in as normal user.
The problem is not playback, every file plays fine but to me the thumbnails are important, it seems like every person who has followed your guidlines to make them work has been successful but me, even on a fresh windows install, what am i doing wrong and can you help me?
