    Pesky MKV (& others) thumbnail icon problem solved


    This software seems to work exceptionally well. Quick install, no cost, and effective. What more could any cheap-b*** chiphead want. I checked it's security history with Kaspersky, and it doesn't have many users yet, but it only showed up a little more than a month ago. The author is a part of Kasper's security network though.

    Anyway, I run MPC-HC for my videos exclusively, and this packeage has made my plain-old-icon blues melt away. Give it a try if you're tired of that same old icon for every movie you own.

    Cool, yes there are certain files won't show thumbnails. If it concerns you to see them, seems like a good program.
