    To repair thumbnail view for video files you can find a reg file made by Dirk Diggler here

    yep....right after installing beta 2 or 3 of WinAmp 3 !!! Funny how NOW after all that...they kind of decided to remove any real movie support from WinAmp 3 !! Hehehe......guess they need to work on that one some more......

    i tried the link you gave Yoyo and followed the steps to re-do my thumbnails but it was still not working. thumbnails for jpgs, gifs, wmw works but for mpg movies thumbnails are not showing only the big icon of windows-movie-player. what else could i do? thanks.
     
  7. do u really absolutely must have those thumbnails? if that fix doesnt work but u still want it, the only thing i can think of , maybe reinstall divx codec , better get nimo pack. i think that might help. never tryed though. in the worst caase scenario u can format and not install that player again
