    Hi. I have a lot of You Tube video downloads I search through, but my current player is not furnishing an image on the thumbnail icon. Actually, SOME .mp4 files show film image snapshots, but other .mp4 do not with my current VLC player. And NONE of my .flv downloads will show an image.

    It seems to be hard to determine whether certain players will produce images or not....at least with my limited computer knowledge.

    Can you advise me of a relatively safe player that will do what I'm seeking?

    Thank you!

    Where are you wishing to see the images? If you are referring to Windows Explorer or File Manager, those icons are not based on the media player. They are based, in part, by WMP support.

    as YT does NOT allow downloading of any videos from their site, I am closing this one up.

    thanks,
