Mp4 Avi Mkv crash explorer.exe Windows 7 [solve]

ok run up to CCCP [Combined Community Codec Pack] its a codec but it tdid solve the problem of explorer crashing how do you do it i already test it in windows 7 yes windows7 and it work no crashing an thumbnails are showing yo simply go here and download this [Link]

*note a recommend you uninstall any codec you have * as far i know this is for windows 7 only never tried in (windows xp , nt , vista, linux or mac) WINDOWS 7 ONLY once you download the link above fallow the next image:


Note after installing it you need to do this Before setting it:

Problem: This setting is not turned on in the CCCP by default. However in all current CCCP builds the feature exists at install to Enable Thumbnails, which will do all of the following automatically. This guide exists as a manual reference for historical purposes.

Solution: Turning on Thumbnails for the above formats is quite simple. It requires you to only follow these three steps.
  • Download this registry file and double click it to apply to your registry. Edit it in notepad or another text editor so you can assure yourself it is not an attempt by the Soviets to takeover.

  • Enter the command prompt by going to Start->Run->cmd (hit enter). Then direct yourself to the "Combined Community Codec Pack\Filters\Haali" directory. Assuming you installed to the default location:
cd "C:\Program Files\Combined Community Codec Pack\Filters\Haali"
In this directory type the following
regsvr32.exe mmfinfo.dll

You should see a confirmation window that the registration was successful if not yo did something wrong go back and re install.
  • Finally go to Start->Programs->Combined Community Codec Pack->Haali Media Splitter Settings. In the settings goto the Options tab (2nd tab) and expand Explorer integration. Now here simply change the dropdown to Yes for Enable thumbnails extraction. Also note you can select an offset which will go into the video X number of frames to extract a thumbnail.
Now you should be able to immediately open an Explorer window and start viewing Thumbnails. This will only effect thumbnail generation for MKV, MP4, OGM, and TS files. AVI thumbnail generation is handled by Microsoft's filter (shmedia.dll), and should remain that way.

In case if is still crashing

Removal: If by chance explorer.exe immidiately starts crashing for you after turning these features on, it likely means you do not have the CCCP correctly installed. You will find little support for getting thumbnails to work from anyone, so your best option is to simply turn off thumbnails for MKV/MP4/OGM. To do this enter the command prompt once again and goto the "CCCP\Filters" directory and type the following:

regsvr32.exe /u mmfinfo.dll

Hey leave a coment its a free world
