    Windows 10 stopped generating video thumbnails


    Hi. A couple of weeks ago my pc stopped generating video thumbnails. It still generates them for other media photos.


    Things I've tried:


    - Disabling and enabling "Use thumbnails not icons" in folder options

    - Disabling and enabling "Use thumbnails not icons" in performance options

    - Clearing thumbnails with Disk clean-up

    - Clearing the thumbnail database with the command prompt

    - Checking for disk or system errors

    - Creating new users and checking if they see the thumbnails they don't

    - Setting a different default app for videos vlc, windows media player, films & tv...


    I'm using Windows 10 Home edition version 1909.


    Thanks

    :)

    Video preview thumbnails

    Hello,

    System file corruption is one of the possible reasons why thumbnail preview has recently disappeared. To better assist you, please answer the following:

    • For clarification, are referring to video preview thumbnails when using File Explorer?
    • We would like to verify if you are referring to the Fall Creators Update. To see your
      Windows build and version, please follow the steps in this
      article
      .

    In the meantime, we suggest creating a Test User Profile. This is to see if the same issue occurs on a different user profile.

    To create a Test User Profile, follow these steps:

    • On Search, type Settings then hit the
      Enter
      key.
    • On Settings window, select Accounts.
    • Select Family & other people.
    • Select Add someone else to this PC.
    • Name the User Profile as TEST.
    • Assign a password for TEST user, then select Next.
    • Sign in TEST user.

    We'll be waiting on the results.

    Windows 10 stopped generating video thumbnails

    Inserting Thumbnails in Video Files..... !?

    That is really complicated. See this thread posted in another forum:

    Video Thumbnails: How to Edit? - VideoHelp Forum

    I would suggest organising videos into appropriately named folders and give each video a name that identifies what it is.

    Note: I've tried various video managers including Veehive and some of them can let you grab a thumbnail to use - mostly those chosen thumbnails are not displayed in Explorer even with MediaPreview installed. Instead thumbnails are auto generated.

    I like this software to browse videos:

    Diffractor: Find and organize - photos, videos and audio.

    You might want to test it. Navigate to a folder containing video then hover mouse over thumbnails.

    A quick demo video. Video can be played within Diffractor and additionally opened in other installed media player. Towards the end of the demo video you see a video opened in PotPlayer with timeline thumbnails. You also get timeline thumbnails in Diffractor.
