Same problem for .mp4 and .m4v files

I am having this same problem for my .mp4 and .m4v files that have embedded cover art. Any advice?

Would anyone be willing to send me a .reg file to fix this? Thanks a ton!!!!

.mp4 is a container and, as far as I know, shouldn't really be used for audio streams only, you have m4a for that.
Secondly, m4v should be used for videos exclusively, and Explorer automatically generates a thumbnail from the video stream, so that's why you're having problems.

Yeah thanks for the confirmation. I had to change different search terms until I finally found what I was looking for.

If anyone would want to do the same thing, here's the answer How to get value into FLAC metadata so it is visible in WMP

I believe I might know the problem with windows not showing album art. I am running Vista, had the same problem, and just fixed it. It is easy.

Windows Explorer (in Vista) does not like ID3 v2.4 tags for album art. I went to MP3Tag program and changed the tag version. (Tools-Options-Tags-Mpeg: then select 'ID3v2.3 UTF16' -

Open any folders giving you problems, make the changes as above, select all files, hit save. All files are now v2.3, which Explorer likes - you should see your artwork.

v2.4 is a fairly new(ly accepted) concept of tags, and is indeed buggy. It may not always create problems such as these, but avoiding them and/or changing them to UNICODE v2.3 is certainly the way to go when tagging files.

Thanks for the heads up

Windows Explorer Music libary not showing album artwork...
When opening Windows Explorer and then opening Music, I'm not seeing album artwork as I do when I open Windows Media player. Album artwork works fine in WMP 12 but not in the Explorer music library. All I see are the generic music notes. This has to be an easy fix, correct?
