    Don't know, maybe they didn't pay their host.
    I heard that lots of people had probs with paypal no paying the hosting servers last month and limiting their accounts for using paypal for paying that.

    I stick with the K-Lite Codec Pack and it includes the Media Player Classic. This pack has been working very well for me for years...

    shark007's codecs are by far the best. They are supercool and blend perfectly with Windows 7.

    yes, this is the same reason i made this, shark and klite don't show proper thumbnails. i don't know how to change the flv thumbnail offset, i've wondered the same. sorry.
    once i figure this out, or the codec supports frame change i'll repack and repost the playback pack.
    thanks for supporting me

    Thank you!

    This is exactly what I was looking for, no unnecessary overkill for Windows 7 and proper, high quality thumbnails for mkv files, which for most HD enthusiasts, will be truly appreciated. And for those who say Sharks codecs are perfect for Windows 7, I'd have to disagree. I loved his codec pack for XP and even Vista, but Windows 7 does not need so much. And as to the MKV thumbnail support his pack provides. those are simply from the divx labs, a package that is still in the beta stages, has known audio sync issues and has no subtitle support whatsoever. And if you use the Explorer Preview Window feature in Win7, the resolution is actually off for mkv playback with the divx lab package, giving videos a slightly stretched look (but in WMP12 the resolution is fine. I do like using the explorer preview window a lot, so I couldn't help but notice.) All in all, it's a poor mkv solution, especially in its current stage.

    Anyway thank you again, chaddawkins, you've solved my only Win7 media issue, your hard work is much appreciated:)

    *UPDATE*
    I finally converted over to x64, so now I offer a Windows 7 x64 codec pack.
    I believe I can still make it a little lighter, but it is still only 8mb. :)

    Thank you very much, i am searching for a solution to show thumbnails in win7 for a very long time. But there is a little problem with some of the files. I use mkvtoolnix (with mkvmerge gui) to attach posters nfo files and subtitles. As you can see in the attached image some files thumbnails are just black and some are white. Do you have any idea or it is possible to fix this issue.
