    Why do some videos show a thumbnail preview, and others do not?

    Attached is a screenshot showing one video as a plain grey thumbnail with the play icon, the other shows up as thumb image of the video.

    having a play around and testing by dragging and dropping various videos from my laptop to the relavant folder on the phone immediately relults in some turning into a thumbnail image, whilst others do not, yet they are all converted to the same format?

    Any ideas or a even a way to list the images / videos on the phone by name so you can find what you're looking for?

    All help appreciated
