Media Preview is a free video editor designed to add support for previewing some of the most widely used video file formats whose previews are not supported by both Windows and third party software. The program supports three languages, English, Chinese and French, and is available in both 64 and 32 bit versions.
Media Preview adds crucial support for many file formats previews which are not available on Windows systems. Though Windows relies on third party software to extend support for many file formats, none of them takes care of the preview feature.
Default Thumbnail extractor often ends up capturing blank frames. The Thumbnail extractor on Media Preview detects the presence on images on frames and captures relevant content from the video.
The video editor is able to generate unique thumbnails for video files with similar starting frames. If it detects the presence of similar frames, the program searches for different frames and uses them as previews for video files.
Rename or manipulate your video files when playing them without any restrictions from Windows.
Support for both 64 and 32 bit systems.
