ContextView Pro v2.0

Win2k / Win95 / Win98 / WinME / WinNT / WinXP
ContextView Pro is pretty neat Windows Explorer add-on which allows you to show thumbnails of video/image files by clicking right mousebutton over the file.

Replaces thumbnail view in Explorer nicely -- I personally get pimples using thumbnail view, because of its slowness and due the fact that I can't get full file details to the window by using Explorer's thumbnail view.

Anyway, program also supports audio preview, but this feature is -- IMHO -- pretty useless, as most of us (if you don't, why?) have WinAMP installed anyway and it adds automatic playback buttons to the rmb context menu anyway.

For pictures this tool is excellent and for video clips its pretty useful, although I would love to see that the video would actually play in the thumbnail, since by showing the first frame (this also should be configurable somehow, I would prefer showing 200th frame or so) we normally just see black box, as the movies and other clips tend to have fade-in before the content begins. Program also supports very basic playback/view functions for each filetype which makes it more powerful for quick browsing through your po... a-hem... picture collection.

Anyway, definately useful little tool and seems to be stable as well.
