    In a folder I have a number of video files and most display a thumbnail of the first image in the clip. But a few just show the default VLC player cone. Anyone know how to get an real image to show?

    no... I'm assuming VLC already plays the vids just fine. You're talking about a lack of thumbnail in Windows Explorer, right? That's because Windows does not use VLC to render the thumbnail... It uses Windows Media Player Codecs. The K-Lite Codec Pack installs these codecs so WMP can decode those vids, and Windows Explorer can properly render the thumbnail.

    Either that, or just take a screencap of an identifiable scene and name it folder.jpg and stick it in the folder with the vid.
