i sorted it - for anyone else having the same issue, do as snowknight said, also uninstall haali media splitter (get latest) reboot, then open regedit and look for any folder\key with haali in it, after that look for any key\folder with .mkv\.mva and delete them all, then install haali, and thums will be back on mkv files :)

another thing is if you have files set to open with another player the thumbnails wont show - has to be windows media player

well im having this iisue again - it happens when you associate the filetype .mkv with media player, i have tried to tdel the thumbs cache, its not working, have even tried the option to untick show icons instead of thumbs and reading it, all other thumbs are displayed (avi mpg wmv) just not .mkv

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
