Faststone now "does" video

The latest version 6.3 of FastStone Image Viewer, Screen Capture, Photo Resizer ... finally recognizes and plays video files. Before, it would not even show an icon for a video, so it is nice that it now does. I use Faststone for many things - lossless cropping, contact sheets, resizing, file moving, etc., and although it can process raw files, I use Elements for that. And it's free.

Pretty useless without video thumbnails though don't you think? Maybe next update...

EDIT: Only .avi thumbs seem to be supported in Faststone. .MOV and .MP4 not.
I don't know of any digital cameras that save as .AVI these days.

I'll stick to Windows Explorer, it shows all my video thumbnails (all, even .mkv and .mts etc).

I see thumbs for AVI, MPG, MKV, MP4, M4V, MOV and WMV, (but not DIVX, 3GP or FLV) so I'm happy to at least I know there is a file there.

Well I see thumbnails for all video types in Windows explorer but only .avi in Faststone 6.3. So that's kind'a odd :-/

Clearing the thm database had no effect. I've contacted support to see what they say. I'll pass on any solutions we come up with because video thumbnails in FSIV would be very useful to me.
I'm not interested in the internal video player mostly because it lacks many useful functions present in my preferred player.
