Icaros is a lightweight, high-quality Windows shell extension. If you're happy with the standard file thumbnails and display performance, the Icaros software allows you overwrite the standard thumbnails in Windows, allowing you to customize what the files look like. This primarily works on video files supported by FFmpeg, such as .mkv, .flv, .mp4, .rmvb, .m2ts and .ogm files. In honesty, nearly every video file type every created is supported by FFmpeg, so Icaros works with almost every video file of all time. The Icaros software also contains customization effects that allow you to produce cover art thumbnails for any file.
The Icaros software makes it super easy to use and does not require additional memory/space or CPU utilization. If you're using Windows Explorer as well, by implementing properties and features within, it can make the Icaros utilization even easier and more productive.
For the Icaros interface, the display is comprehensive and straightforward. You're able to activate and deactivate the thumbnails with just the click of the button. This provides you a peek into what the content of the video is - without going through the arduous task of opening every file.
The coolest benefit of this is that you can select where in the video that the thumbnail is generated from. You simply toggle the embedded cover art for thumbnails.
It's an easy way to implement view the file content and has many themes
Icaros software can be a useful tool for people with vast video collections - allowing them to simply see what their files are containing instead of spending time opening them or naming them a certain way.
