    I added these registry entries to get thumbnails with Medialooks Flash DirectShow Source Filter, but I don't like the filter because you can't skip/seek through the video, if you try it will start the video over [besides, it's shareware]

    Inno, if you're familiar

    this doesn't make sense to me, since FLVSource.ax is suppose to be a Source, Splitter and FLV4 decoder

    is it possible to fix this, so that we can have thumbnails in Win7 [which has native AVC/AAC]?

    thanks again

      i'm not very clear in my message, these registry entries will not generate thumbnails with FLVSplitter.ax

      Win7 Codec pack by Shark007 and K-lite codec pack use FLVSplitter.ax, but neigther will generate thumbnails... i don't like to use ffdshow, is this the problem? FLVSplitter ONLY works properly with ffdshow?

    Hi Chad,

    The thumbnails are generated if you open a 32-bit explorer window. For example, if you have Acrobat, go to File -> Open and from the file type drop down list select All. Navigate your way to a folder that contains some FLV files (make sure you view as large icons). If the FLV files are not in FLV1 format, then thumbails will be generated. This will work if you have the 1.0.0.5 version of the 32-bit FLVSplitter.ax file installed.

    I also have the latest version of the 64-bit splitter installed (version 1.0.0.4), but it still doesn't work in regular 64-bit explorer. Obviously, the culprit is the 64-bit splitter file. I wish clsid2 would update them. :(

    Regards,
    John

    P.S. I forgot to mention that I had to add a registry entry to enable thumbnail generation for FLV files, but I'm sure you already know about that.
