    How do I enable “preview” with first snippet for a mpeg file ?
    I used to have the video's first frame for an mpeg-file on my Desktop as an Icon, but now I'm getting [this](https://i.stack.imgur.com/OUzB9.jpg). I have installed several new videoplayers and I've lost that preview and now I cannot restore it back. How this can be done ?

    Sorry, you can't attach images to Forum posts, and without the pic there's not really enough information in the text (platform, application, etc) as to what's happening..

    I have Windows 8.1 and VLC the latest version. You can copy url of that link in my question I've provided.

    I'm strictly a Mac guy, so I can't say how you'd assign or restore an icon/preview to a file in Windows, but quick searches for "missing icon for video file windows 8.1 and "missing preview for video file windows 8.1" turned up lots of responses -- some of the first search results seem relevant to your description..

    I'm new here so I do not know, but the post of my OQ may be closed now, if there is such a thing here and marked as solved.
