Media Preview, designed for versatility and performance, is actually an addon for Windows File Explorer to automatically generate and display media files as thumbnails. Since 2021, when the large worldwide migration from Windows XP to Windows 7 came about, media preview in Windows' File Explorer was in a very bad condition. The "transparent" preview button which appears at the top right of Windows Explorer does nothing to safeguard the user's data and often causes the preview to randomly cycle through all available video/image formats. And, even though Windows has a standard library of video/image formats, the system is unable to automatically determine the format to use and often displays only a default format. Also, while Windows introduced the feature of "cards" to enable the user to categorize their files, this only worked so well in the sense that the user could sort their files based on card type rather than a name or date. While there is a way around the aforementioned problems, it is much more preferable to apply the Media Preview Add-On, which allows users to simply drag and drop any video or image file and then convert them to quality 4K format using the TransTool.
Media Preview (built into Windows Vista) and Windows Movie Maker both share the same basic functionality: they allow you to quickly see photos, videos and audio files while in Windows Explorer. And, while Media Preview in Windows Movie Maker is very similar to the built-in Windows Movie Preview Add-On, it has many additional features including the ability to create thumbnails, rotate and zoom in/out, switch between picture-in-picture and full screen viewing and has the ability to send Microsoft Office files to a specific email address. But, while Windows Movie Maker and Windows Movie Preview are able to perform virtually the same tasks, their additional abilities truly make them useful tools to enhance productivity on the web and in your personal computer. For example, here are some of the benefits you stand to enjoy by using Media Preview in Windows Vista:
- The simple application allows you to preview a variety of Windows video types such as Flash movies, Windows Movie File, Windows Media, Windows Movie Video and Windows AVI. - The superior technical support makes using Media Preview easier than ever. - You can easily organize all your files in folders, delete unnecessary files and move them around if needed. - You can also apply different effects and customize the video and audio effects.
