Im cant seem to get the thumbnail to appear when I'm looking through my videos on my Laptop. I have done several things trying to fix it but no luck, such as: Reinstalling Codecs, Reinstalling VLC, Run Disk Cleanup, Went into advanced system settings and then performance then changed to "adjust for best appearence", also made all folder templates "Pictures and Videos" and lastly checked if under folder options "always show icon, not thumbnail" was unselected which it was.

Anyone got any other clues or things I can try, currently it just shows a big VLC Cone. I have vista Home Premium.

Hmmm, using Windows 7 here and all of my videos to run in VLC all show the big cones too.
