Like it says: when you acquire a pro-level license, the watermark will be gone. There's no other way.

Perhaps I missed a thread on here...I can view .pdf files fine through Thumbs+ when double-clicking on .pdf thumbnails.

What I'm looking for is a way, in thumbnail view, to have them displayed without the overlay: "This Format Requires ThumbsPlus Professional Edition."

ThumbsPlus v10 Questions / Dark background for info panels?
« Last post by rtouart on 2020-07-29 15:17:48 »
I've set Windows 10 to Dark Mode and would like for ThumbsPlus to have a completely dark background. Have any of you accomplished this?

Yes all videos play perfectly in Windows Media Player, I have always managed to play every kind of format in ThumbsPlus without any problems until I changed the Graphics card.

All videos play perfectly in Thumbsplus once you have opened one that will just have a black screen, paused it then open another.

I do have and always have had K-Lite codecs on my system.

Have you tried playing those videos in Windows Mediaplayer?  ThumbsPlus doesn't really play videos, it just tells Windows to do so (using the DirectShow functionality of Windows).

If your Windows system cannot play those files (except through 3d party players like VLC), have you tried..:

- to Identify the FourCC of a video that does not play correctly
- to Check which codec is handling that FourCC on your system?

Useful tools: G-Spot and Codec Tweak Tool.

On my antique system, I can use the FFDShow 'Video Decoder configuration' utility to assign FourCCs to the LibAVCodec decoder which always seems to work fine. Apparently newer systems that have the K-Lite codec pack installed use the 'LAV Video decoder' (still based on libavcodec) which may have a separate configuration tool - I don't know.

Side note: if you happen to have the Haali Media Splitter installed on your system, you may have to remove that and re-install the LAV filters or the K-Lite pack to get them to work correctly.

That sounds like a workaround Jens, I think the plan would be to open ThumbsPlus,  open then pause any video which will have a black window, leave it open, then view videos as required which will play perfectly.

since I couldn't solve this problem (the codecs are always up to date), I started to use the VLC player.
The thing was that I clicked on a video, a black window poped up with no video but the sound. When I clicked the video once again while the black window was still running the sound, the video plays correctly in the second window.

I have just installed a new graphics card, a Nvidia Geforce GT 710 and have exactly the same problem with videos being blank but after some research it appears that it is indeed Thumbsplus that is the problem and has nothing to do with codecs.

It is because legacy overlays are not supported when attempting to render the video.

I have been using Thumbsplus for years and despite not being able use my scanner, a CanoScan5600F within the program, I have stuck with it but now I am unable to view my video files there really doesn't seem much point. Of course I could use an external program to view the videos but that is hardly a very satisfactory solution.
