no thumbnails and video playback in preview

Post by gummiband » Fri Oct 05, 2018 11:35 pm

hello,

since recently xnview stopped displaying thumbnails and i only hear the audio from videos in the preview pane without the video being displayed (black square instead). opening the video in its own tab works as intended.

using:
xnview 2.45 portable version
win 10 64bit
k-lite 14.5.2 ffdshow (installation of this may fall together with the loss of playback/preview functionality)

any idea/suggestion on how to start debugging this?

I have reinstalled the codec pack, no change.
I have reinstalled XnView, no change. However, preview and playback with the internal player worked exactly for one time, directly after the installation. I can delete and reinstall, but apparently i have to use a different folder each time in order to have it working, and this is only works for the first program start.

.mp4 .avi .mkv and .mov
those are the immediate ones that i have access to, but i suspect all video files.

if you hear audio, so for me it's a codec problem
