    Disable thumbnails preview of video files only

    Hi there. At the beginning I have to say I know option "always show icons, never thumbnails" in folder options but it's not what I want to use because it doesn't solve my problem.

    When I was using Windows 7 there was a tool which helps to disable preview of video files. Is it possible to do same in Windows 8? It's very annoying when icons view is set to average and preview is on. I'd like to disable preview of video files permanently. Is it possbile? In every size of icon I want default icon for this extension. In Windows 7 there was no problem to handle with this.

    I used KLite Codec Tweak Tool when I was using Windows 7 and disable thumbnail preview option was available. In Windows 8 this feature is disabled.
