  1. Hi everybody.
    First of all, i need to say that i've read this tread (Thumbnails for MKV files) by Steve01351, but it didn't solve this problem i have.


    I recently switch to Win 10 Pro from Win 7 Ultimate, And all my videos (Mostly MKV) custom thumbnail's background goes black after one or two refreshes in the folder.

    Now, i installed K-Lite Codec Pack last version, like i always used. I always make covers in PS and save as .PNG for so many years in Win7, never have this happened before, I tried thumbnail catch deletion via DiskCleanup, I remove Photos app, i uninstalled Codec, Re-Install, I brung back Windows Photo Viewer via registry edit with capability to open most common image types, I even installed fresh win 10 pro twice !



    This is what its look like:


    Before refreshing the Folder:

    K-Lite Codec Pack is a crappy way of installing codecs,just install the needed ones such as lav filter,as to thumbnails install Icaros.

    Hi, Thanks for responding.

    I did those already, No luck. As i said before, I didn't have any problems on Win 7 for years.

    Probably you should report this issue to Microsoft... (thumbnail generation mechanisms of the Explorer) or whatever software responsible for your custom thumbnail display.

  6. install Win 10 on another SSD fresh and load the files into file explorer and see what happens.

    Covers should not be displayed, but a screenshot of the movie itself sholud be displayed.

    Install Icaros standalone.

    Then the covers should work, if you enabled it in options.

    You still can put your old SSD in the pc and use it if you like.

    But stay away from Codec Packs like K-Lite, you also don't need AVICodec or whatever you've installed there.

    You oly need MPC-BE which has Filters for almost every filetype and Codec used in it. You can also instzall LAV Filters which can also almost everything. Do not install more, because it is simply not needed.

    I'll try to do this things you mentioned. Thanks for reply.
    I had no problem in Win7 with all these codecs installed. Maybe it's Win 10 fault.

    What you should do is for png files is right click on a png and choose 'open with' choose another app and look for Windows Photo Viewer' and click on always use this app to open png files.Check the box so it remembers your choice.
