Icaros 2.2.6

Icaros is a collection of lightweight Windows Shell Extensions, which is capable of providing Windows Explorer thumbnails for essentially any video media file type. Icaros can provide Windows Explorer thumbnails, for essentially any video media format supported by FFmpeg which includes popular filetypes such as: MKV, FLV, AVI, MP4, MOV, RMVB, M2TS, OGM...etc. It is capable of thumbnailing just about any file by adding its extension(s) to the optional filetypes box and re-activating Icaros. Besides the FFmpeg supported filetypes, Icaros also contains custom parsers, which can produce Cover Art thumbnails for Mkv, Flac, Ape, and Mpc files. Icaros also provides Windows Explorer properties for the following popular filetypes: Mkv, Avi, Flv, Ogm, Ogv, Ogg, Rm, Rmvb, Flac, Ape, and Mpc.
