No Thumnails for MJPEG AVIs in PSE 11 Organizer

Nov 30, 2012 1:17 PM

My AVI Video clips are not showing thumbnails in the PSE 11 Orgazizer. 

 

Here is what I have observed as I have been troubleshooting this:

 

The files are MJPEG.

When I double click on it in the organizer window, I get audio, but no video.

If I open the file for edit in Premier Elements, the video thumbnail shows up in project assests and the video correctly plays in the Premier Elements editor. 

 

If I double click on the files in Windows Explorer they open up in Quicktime Version 7. 

The thumbnails for the files show in up windows explorer  when I browse to the folder they are in.

I selected a file in PSE, chose 'Export to New File" and the file that I created by doing that showed a generic Quicktime icon without the thumbnail in windows explorer.   When I double click on that file it correctly plays in Quicktime.

Selecting "Update Thumbnail" has no effect.

 

Any one have any ideas what is going on with the organizer that might be causing this beavior or is this a know limitation of PSE Organizer.  What is the point of having the organizer supporting video If I can't see the video without opening it in the Premier Elements Editor?

    Choose "Update Thumbnail" after right click on the video in the Organizer.

    In the menu /edit/preferences/files, you have a checkbox : Automatically generate thumbnails for video files.

     

    You may also ask in the Premiere Elements Forums :

    I have avi files dated before 2007. No thumbnail problem in PSE11 (I don't have PRE).

    I've tested with an M-JPEG AVI files on my side and I get the thumbnails no problem.

     

    Do you have other video editors installed or codec packs? It could be a new codec for M-JPEG was installed that is incompatible with Elements Organizer.

    Hi ,

     

    Please import some different AVI files and see them to whether new files are showing thumbnail correctly or not.
