    Video Preview Thumbnail Not Working


    Hi Question2..I'm new to this site today + when I was looking for an answer on another problem, I found yours. I see that you've sorted it out now, but I had the same problem that started suddenly in windows 7 that went on for months until I found the sollution...I do a lot of video editing + it's essential that I'm able to see at a glance what's in the folders. I thought, like you, that I had cured it after jumping through, (it seemed) practically EVERY hoop possible but the problem came back again not long after. About 3 months ago I did find a permanent fix for it. It is a free, tiny little program download called 'Icarus'. You just open it up + it shows you all the thumbnail filetypes registered + property of the filetypes registered. You can add as many of your own not listed as you like + just click 'activate'. You will see all your files restored to their former glory..No fuss, that's all you do + it's perfectly safe. I've not had a problem since.
    If, like me, you get the nasty little inconvienience back...Download this gem...Hope it works out...

    Thumbnail preview issue


    First, I am not an expert so don't expect detailed explanations. Next, my anti-virus software wouldn't let me install Icaros, so use at your own risk.
    What did work (and the only thing that worked) was this: I use K-Lite codec pack; if you go to K-lite program folder (where all your programs live), click on it, in the dropdown menu, click on "codec tweaks", this will open a box with several options, all pretty self-explanatory. Just follow your common sense, check the boxes that include your files, disable the "broken" thumbnail handlers and so on. Empty the thumbnail cache. Re-start your computer and voila, thumbnails. Worked for me, hope it works for you!

    Icarus software is considered malware as is much software from Yontoo. If you do use it be aware it will indeed install other software that can be harmful to your system. I would recommend running Malwarebytes and Adw Adware cleaner if you install Icarus.

    Icaros (check your spelling) isn't necessary, why take a chance on malware when the problem is your codecs, just try what I posted, it will work without risking your system.
