View Full Version : preview video files

In my version of win2000 if you highlighted a movie file, it would give you a little preview window in which you could play the movie on the side of the window... much similiar to when you click on a jpg you can see a small preview of it off to the side. i like the preview movie feature, but i seem to be missing it in XP. any thoughts?

Hmm, that's interesting.
I have W2K here and it doesn't do that for me. Are you just using My Computer or Windows Explorer to get the screen?
On XP you can select View --> Thumbnails in Windows Explorer and the previews come up.

Yeah I don't recall Windows 2000 having that capability natively. Perhaps your machine had some other software installed that could do that? ACDSee, for example, installs a package that will do something similar to that and it works for me on Windows XP.

There was a little tweak that you add to folder options in WinME and 98 (perhaps win2k) that'll let you do the video preview thing. I've searched all over for the same tweak in XP but never found it. So I don't think you can do that again :(.
