Is there a media player (for desktop) that shows thumbnails of frames at different times like in most popular online videos players now a days?

I particularly like youtube.com/tv's version where seeking via keyboard left/right pops up a timeline of thumbnails at which the video will skip.

It should work on Windows. It should be gratis.

  • Paid or only free? If paid is OK, what's your limit? – Izzy Aug 29 '16 at 15:56
  • That's very hard to find a free media player with thumbnail preview on the timeline / progress bar, still in 2020. VLC doesn't (really) want to add this feature. There was "Media Player Classic - Home Cinema" (MPC-HC) which had it, but it's not maintained anymore since 2017. Hopefully Media Player Classic - BE takes over, thank you laggingreflex, and thank you MPC-BE! Note: I add this comment mostly to help next people searching this topic like me. – Hugo P Sep 3 at 15:52
