But if all these cannot fix it, pal then it is out of my capacity to fix it. You can contact Wishmaster ... I hope he can

You should have thumbnails with the exception of some MKV files.

Sometimes explorer will not generate them right away. Not sure why.

But you can force it by opening WMP and let it scan the Video folder.
Or, opening the folder in the actual location (not library) the files are located, will force thumbs to generate. At which point you'll see in library view as well.

Im unsure about Klite, but it works w/Shark007s pack

But as Arc already said, MP4 & AVI should have thumb support out of the box.

Frame of video thumbnail?
Hi, I find it really annoying that windows only captures the first 2 seconds of a video to display as a thumbnail, i mean every video always starts with either black or some intro which means the thumbnail is utterly useless. Is there any hack to display a different frame? (I did something on...
