I'm thankful to see that there are developers such as this that are providing thumbnail creator apps... but... why do the thumbnails for 'full image' preference appear blurry?

This never happened when I used QuickImageCM (no longer supported in SnowLeopard).

Tested on Leopard (v. X.5.8 - Intel) and it is working fine here. Many thanks. :)

Fantastic in every way, unfortunately I cannot get it to create Thumbnails for WMV files though I have Flip4Mac installed.

Still getting services error with 3.0.2. I *do* have a services folder in my user library, and there never has been a CocoThumbX service in there. I'd love to be able to get this to work, but it just won't. :(

Great.

But it would be great if the icons are more discernible.

Like movies with that vertical black bars with holes for example.

So the file extension would not be necessary to be on.

I like this!

I just wish I had an option to save the icon thumbnail when you choose the Save Icns option.

That way you would not have to go back to CocoThumb and choose Add Thumbnail once again, on the just saved .Icns file.

This would replace Iconverter completely for me.

Great app - really useful - but broken since the Quicktime 7.1.3 update. Hopefully the developer's working on a fix...

Broken?
i have not received any emails that CocoThumbX does not work with QT 7.1.3.
And i've got no problem on my own iMac G5 using CTX with the newest QT version.

And please do not post any feedback about crashes here. Send me an email with the crashreport to my account.

An Error Occured

Can not install or register the new CocoThumbX Service. Please go to ~/Library/Services and delete the CocoThumbX service manually.
Then restart CocoThumbX

on launch after updating from an older version. I don't have a ~/Library/Services folder on my Mac. Where is the service installed?

OSX 10.4.9

Simple workaround for that error:

• Manually create ~/Library/Services

When you relaunch CocoThumbX after that it'll copy CocoThumbXService.service to that folder.

I don't understand if I can install again QT 7.0.4 after reinstalling QT 7.0.1.
Thank you Sven
