    Dude said:
    If it were a codec issue, would it not play the video at all, not just the preview?
    You're probably right but that tool could fix Direct Show Filter issues rather than codec issues.

    Same problem here as well on Windows 10 Pro x64 2004 build 19041.508. I have configured MadVR with Potplayer as well as MPC-BE and was able to see live video in the thumbnail peek after minimizing the player whilst the video is playing. I use an amazing software called OnTopReplica which shows the thumbnail peek in a separate frame. Now after the 2004 update it only works if i do not minimize the player window. Am pretty sure there was a registry entry for Direct3D under "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Direct3D\Shims\EnableOverlays" and now it's vanished.

    Mine doesn't seem to matter in terms of thumbnails.

    I have a few different media players installed and they all show timeline thumbnail previews as well as taskbar thumbnail previews.

    For PotPlayer check:

    Active thumbnail previews for video players in taskbar no longer work!-potplayer-2.jpg

    MadVR:

    But if you have other apps that can play video and you don't see taskbar thumbnails (video playing) then I don't know of a setting that might enable or disable.

    Hi,

    Could you please upload a video capture on youtube to show that you are seeing "Live Active Thumbnails? in your bottom taskbar?

    Because I have tried everything and no matter what media player I use all I get when minimizing a media player is a frozen thumbnail.

    I really do not understand why Microsoft broke this feature.

    Thanks

    Sadly screenshots will not help me as my point was I wanted to see you hovering over the minimized thumbnail in the taskbar and wanted to see if the thumbnail was showing the video playing and not just a still image.

    This issue started with all Windows versions after "1909 18363.592"

    I just wish I could get a real answer from Microsoft whether this is done on purpose or if its a bug and will it be fixed.
