Windows 7: Extra large icons for video files - tweaking the screenshot?

Extra large icons for video files - tweaking the screenshot?

Hi all,

If you set the view to Extra Large Icons for video media files, it shows a screen capture from an instant very early in the video file (like in the first 5 seconds or something). Is there a way to modify what point in the video file the screenshot is taken from?


Edit: even better, is there is a way to set it so that, if you hover your mouse cursor over the icon, it cycles through several screenshots at various points in the video?

It sounds like what you need a a program for cataloging and managing your video files, like Movie Collector. With it, instead of the icons as you are talking about, it uses images such as DVD covers that you scan, download from it's scraper, or find searching with Google or it's likes:

DVD Database software, catalog your DVD and Blu-Ray movies
