How to set the thumbnail generator for the explorer with icon view RRS feed

  • Question

  • I use Windows 7 and folder containing the video files I use the following view in explorer:

    Explorer >> Change view -> Large icon view. I see the sample picture (snapshot) from the video.

    The problem is that the icon picture will be prepared the begining of the video. I have a lot of home made films in same folder, and all films contains the same intro. The intro length is 60 seconds, so in the icon view the same image (snapshot) displayed as thumnails.

    How can I change the snapshot preparing time in the registry (later time, for example change to 180 sec)

    Thanks, diarlaa
