    Thumbnails in media files folders

    Recently when I open a folder with media files, such as mp4 videos, I only see same thumbnails for all of them, once (before starting and failed upgrade) each video file was a thumbnail picture of the video, and also noticed when I open such a folder, there is not the Green progress bar which indicates the content is updating. I even click on the "refresh" but nothing happens.
    Hope you know what I mean.
    How can I restore that.
    Thanks for answering.
