Sorry. That last comment is incorrect. I don't see traffic because I had blocked it.

You can change how it looks. Not sure what you need. You can auto-resize videos or set it to remember last window position used. Also you can use borderless window playback.

VLC

You could also try VLC.
VideoLAN - Official page for VLC media player, the Open Source video framework!

I have K-Lite Codec Pack (including MPC-HC) and VLC installed in W7 (and XP).

l was apprehensive about trying VLC, l noticed on a friends machine all his video icons were traffic cones, not sure if it would change for me but l like my thumbnails, plus l remember hearing something about codecs getting messed up or something when VLC was installed. but so far Potplayer has done what ld usually do with WMP, however l'll see if it starts to grow on me more.

by the way, like your sig lehnerus2000, was a pretty good anime... watched it years ago ^_^

That should only occur if you set VLC as the default video player.

I have MPC-HC (set as the default) and VLC installed and I see thumbnails with the MPC-HC symbols.

As with many manga-to-anime conversions, the manga was (IMO) better and longer.

The anime caught up to the manga and so the producers had to improvise an ending.
As you may have guessed, Helen was my favourite Claymore.

with regards to default player l like to have a different player as default because then l can open it up without messing my current playlist up

in regards to anime, its been so long l could rewatch again tho l have a good list to get through before then.

RE: Playlists in PotPlayer. If you move, rename, add or delete videos in a monitored directory the playlist is automatically updated with the changes.

RE: Thumbnails in explorer. I use this:
