Hi,
If you want Thumbs for video and Album art for audio to be shown as icon in Windows you can use tweak tools from https://www.codecguide.com/download_kl.htm that can switch thumb creation for windows.

what do you mean by installing ffmpeg? ffmpeg is an standalone cli app, you dont install it... what do you mean?

Thumbnail Generation as always been checked in the options.
It's just that it didn't have any effect for me in previous builds.
Now it worked.

How do you test? If you enable thumbnail generation it will automatically do it for all videos missing thumbnail.

I noticed this is now working for me in build 1371 :D

Maybe I should do a clean install + clean DB

On 1357 I tested:

1) Turn off video thumbnail generation
2) Add folder with videos
3) View folder and no thumbnails (as expected)
4) Restart MediaMonkey (many AV's started popping up)
5) Enabled video thumbnail generation
6) Notice that status bar showed video thumbnail generation in progress
7) Navigated to video folder and saw some of the thumbnails
8 ) 1 thumbnail failed to show (the one being created as I entered the folder), but all other showed (including ones created after I opened the folder)

So it seems to work here except for the one quirk.

Hello.

Tried with build 1357.
And still no thumbnails after scanning the library.

Latest Codec Pack is installed. And the videos play in Mediamonkey.

Please try this again in build 1355. It includes significant improvements to the manner in which thumbnails are generated. (note: I've tested this, and can't replicated).

Wow that's weird I just did a complete rescan of my library. ( with "only for files with changed timestamp or size" unchecked and "Generate thumbnails for videos" checked )

And no thumbnails have been generated!

Is there a list of all the things that goes to the Mediamonkey's temporary directory?

That would help me decide if I should change the location like you suggested.
When you auto-convert for devices, and when you rip CDs (as they are ripped to WAV > encoded to your ripping format > Moved to destination). Those files are automatically cleared though. Some scripts store log files there (I know lyricator does). Also UPnP tracks (auto-converstion) and UPnP album art is stored there.

Thumbnails, UPnP streaming cache are things I've seen.

Would be nice if there was an option to move the thumbnail cache folder elsewhere.
Why not disable cleaning the folder by CCleaner then?
Or just change the location in the MM options.
