Hi there, I'm having this problem since 2 months or so..I've tried every possible solution for this......see the image below
I've used the codec pack K-LITE codec pack( used randomly K-lite MEGA codec pack and K-lite Codec pack FULL after every new release codec pack).First I used to get thumbnails for all filetypes..now I dont know what hpnd I get thumbnail previews for only ".MP4,.FLV,.MKV" and no for .avi,.divx,.3gp etc..

Re: No thumbnail Preview of video files in VISTA Ultimate
You will not get video previews on files for which you lack the proper video codex. Furthermore, that codex needs to be accessible to Windows media player. If it is application specific, only available to Nero, etc. it won't work.

How to clear the thumbnail cache in Windows VistaClearing the thumbnail cache: Windows keeps a copy of all of your picture, video, and document thumbnails so they can be displayed quickly when you open a folder. If you delete the thumbnail cache, they will be automatically created when needed. The thumbnail preview problems can be resolved by clearing the thumbnail database and let the system rebuild it as and when required. To do so, use these steps: Click Start, type cleanmgr and press ENTER
Click My files only
Select the system drive letter from the drop-down list
Uncheck all the entries except Thumbnails
The thumbnail database is stored globally in Windows Vista, unlike Windows XP, where the thumbnail database is stored on a per-folder basis. In Windows Vista, the default Thumbnail cache location is mentioned below: %LocalAppData%MicrosoftWindowsExplorer
Did you install Vista yourself? Coud you have installed Vista on a PC that is not Vista ready? Most likely problem is that your video card is not supported for the preview feature of Vista. However, if you are sure that your video card is Vista compatible then you might need to find the latest (Vista compatible) driver for your video card. I once upgraded a video card driver to find that it suddenly supports Vista window preview function.
There is no known software compatibility with adobe premiere and vista. The problem will be that you might have changed any setting in vista for thumbnails. I know vista is much different than windows. So, have a look around at the settings.
