    I uploaded a wmv file and when you go to  the media page it shows the file with the windows media circle icon with the 4 colors.  I have an image file that I would like to use instead of this.  Can't figure out how to do this.  This is what I tried.  Call the file The File.wmv.  I took the jpeg and called it The File.jpg and put it in the media/thumbs folder.  No luck.  Is there a way to have the jpeg show instead of the default windows media player icon?

    The thumb name must be PRECISELY the same name as the original file, "The File.wmv" in both the standard folder and the thumb folder.  Same as the PDF..

    media/thumbs/My.pdf  (JPG file)
