Icaros Shell Extensions Review

A shell tool for adding thumbnails to video files
A review of Icaros Shell Extensions by Sven Sørensen

Icaros Shell Extensions is a toolset of Windows shell extensions which display thumbnails inside of Explorer windows. It supports different types of media like album thumbnails, video files, audio files and more. It integrates open source FFmpeg.

Icaros Shell Extensions currently works with FLAC, MP3, MP4, OGG, MP4, MOV, MKV and FLV files, among several others. It generates thumbnails for many formats and when possible, displays more information about the files when you hover over the file or check its properties.

The program is very easy-to-use and settings are customizable; you can change thumbnail spacing, modify which files it parses and more.

Essentially, anything that FFmpeg supports should be parsed by Icaros Shell Extensions. Overall, a useful program especially if you work a lot with multimedia files.
