In another posting i mentioned that making thumbnails from .mts files can take a long time because the complete file is read before the thumb is created.
Today i found that the same happens in a slideshow and with the internal video player. So this is not only an issue with creating thumbs - it affects all functions.
In sight of more and more people using AVCHD cameras, this should become an item on the to-do list. Just my opinion.

Btw: different codec packs didnīt change anything. Also different settings. That it can be done "the easy way" can be seen in WINDOWS itself: it has no problems to create thumbs of .mts files in one second.

Well... This works good for a handful of files. But it is not unusual that you have a hundred or more clips when you return from a recording session in the forest for example...

Btw: VLC has a built-in snapshot button without the need for extra software.

Well i tried renaming it to mp4 with the result that no thumb was created at all.
I will check other options like camera settings. If any success - i will post it here.
Thank you very much for your help!

Best Regards

Alright. The virtual memory thing applied: no change.

Thumbnail creation of two files about the same size (250MB) from a network drive:

.mp4 = some few data was read but it was done in 2 seconds
.mts = ALL data was transferred into RAM, thumb created and RAM data released

So i guess TP is searching for something in the file and therefore needs to read in the complete thing. Since the .mts is AVCHD and not "regular" MP4, this might be the reason.

Hello everybody!

I am using 4010.
Lately i bought a new HD video camera. When creating thumbnails it seems that the complete file (.mts) is being read just to create a thumb from the first frame (this is what it is set to but other settings like percentage do the same. You can watch this with the task manager).

In other words: a Full HD video of 12 GB is completely read in just to create the thumb from the first frame. Even with 32GB of Memory and multiple files, the system-cache is filled quickly with the video files. As a consequence the system slows dramatically down because all other data has to be read again from the HDD after the thumbnail creation filled the cache completely.

So my question is: Is there any way to prevent TP from doing this?

Best regards
