    Hi people, i installed Windows 10 LTSB N and i love this version but I do not get to have preview video file icon as in the picture ( UKBN1rN.png ) . I think this is the fact that Windows Media Player is not in this version.

    I have installed in virtual machine W10 LTSB and i have the preview in video file...

    Do you know if it is possible to install Windows Media Player in this version ?
    Have you an idea ?

    PS: i use french version.
    Thank you!

    I have solved the problem by installing Feature pack from Microsoft microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=48231 :clap:

    When your going to install the media feature pack for N, why did you choose to install a N version in the first place? N versions actually are especially made, forced by local laws (eg. europe in the past) which do not accept microsoft putting all kinds of "extra" stuff in windows like wmp and other apps.

    The whole purpose of N editions is not to have any media features
    and the sole purpose of MediaFeaturePack is to add those features back

    so you basically got back from LTSB N to LTSB
    wasn't easier just to install regular LTSB :rolleyes:

    According to ms the feature pack doesn't fully restore all media features, but i think your knowledge is bigger than mine about this :)

    Because i don't use WMP but i need preview on video file, so i have installed this Feature pack and just remove WMP in features, now i have the some extra codecs to have preview icon video file working :mushy:

    For my future fresh install i will use W10 Ent LTSB lited with msmg toolkit and NTLite.

    Unless one have a very specific need (like WMC) there isn't any point on getting 100+ MB of unneeded stuff.

    The OP had just to install the LAV codecs or a codec pack if the goal was just to have the previews
