    Is there a way to disable thumbnail generation in the Video Library? When
    accessing videos over a network, especially MPEG2 files, the entire
    experience hangs and seems to eventually time-out, resulting in many videos
    not having thumbnails anyway. To be honest, I actually prefer the view
    before any thumbnails are generated anway (with the video title in the box).

    Is there a way to change/remove registry entries or any other hack to stop
    the thumbnails?

    A question :
    To avoid automatic thumbnail generation for each video (and crash risk) ,
    is-it enough to add for each video, in the same directory, an jpg picture
    with exactly the same name as the video ?

    ( For me, I create an picture for each video that have not it's automatic
    thumbnail )
