All versions: XnView MP will not display video thumbnails

Post by Trakatan » Mon Jul 16, 2018 8:45 pm

XnView: MP 0.91 Beta 3 64 bit (I tried the stable version as well)
OS: Windows 10 64 bit
Effect: Video thumbnails are not displayed
I read that the app is supposed to show thumbnails for video files, but for me it's not doing that. All I see is VLC's traffic cone icon. This happens with all video formats.
To reproduce: Well, I'm not sure since I haven't found other threads about this issue and the feature seems to be working for most people. Perhaps try xnview mp with VLC installed as your video player on the latest version of windows 10?
Expected behaviour: Thumbnails should be generated and displayed

Yes, all and any formats. I don't get thumbnails for any videos. Are you mentioning that it's based on ffmpeg because of ffmpeg's thumbnailer? Do you suspect it's not being used?

Yes. And if I open them from xnview mp, they open with its video player. But the thumbnails are still just vlc icons.

Welp, that solved the problem. Apparently the box wasn't ticked by default though? I'm sure I had never seen the "Custom filters" screen before, so I didn't do that. :|
