View MKV thumbnails in Windows 7

November 16, 2010 Leave a comment

Woke up in the morning, brushed up, tied my laces, gelled my hair, opened my computer, made a blog and started this post.

Have a lot of movies, episodes or videos? If they are avi you would should be getting a thumbnail view like this. (if not change the view from ‘small icons’ to ‘large/extra large icons’ and don’t ask me how).

This thumbnail view in Windows 7 and Vista makes quite definitely certainly one of good things about it. What if you have a hell lot of mkv files (blu-ray prints) and the thumbnail doesn’t come up. I really felt that  f***ing annoying. I wasted almost an hour searching for the possible ways to view these thumbnails.

EASY METHOD (for the lazy ones like me)

Just click on this and download it here. Install it as usual.

THE DIFFICULT METHOD

Download Shark007 codecs from here. That’s it.

The former is easier than the latter due to differences in file size.

Feel free to comment and ask anything. I got an A2 in English, don’t go on my grammar.

Bazinga!
