    No thumbnails for some videos in PE11 Organizer

    Paul Galbraith

      I can view/edit MP4 videos that come from my phone, in PE11, but there is no thumbnail that shows up in the organizer.  It seems to be isolated to the MP4 videos from this device ... is this common, is there anything I can do to get thumbnails to be displayed (right clicking and ask for a new thumbnail to be generated doesn't work).

          Is that an iPhone?

           

          If yes... you say you CAN edit, so these may not help

            Thanks for the reply, John.

             

            My phone is a Sony Android.  And yes I can view/edit in PE (though I haven't really tried to do anything much in PE ... just verified it opens and recognizes/plays the video).

             

            On a lark, after reading those posts, I went and got QT Pro, and tried exporting to AVI and the result imported to PE 11 organizer with a blank white icon.  Presumably, I'm sure, if I fiddled with the export options I guess I can make this work, but it would still be far preferable to have PE11 show some sort of thumbnail for the MP4 files if possible.  Windows explorer has no issue showing a thumbnail for these, nor have a couple other organizers I've tried, so this is definitely peculiar to the PE11 organizer.

             

            If it offers any insight, here is what mediainfo says:
