[Request] Option so that Thumbnails are based on Metadata tag/tags Empty [Request] Option so that Thumbnails are based on Metadata tag/tags

Hi,

Is it possible to add an option to force video thumbnails to be created based on some metadata values?
I'm thinking specifically of the "Rotation" tag. I have hundreds of videos that when played are correct but their video thumbnails have the wrong rotation.

I use K-Lite Codec Pack (Mega) and based on testing few videos with MediaInfo & ExifTool, it seems that Media Player Classic uses the metadata to rotate the video when playing but the thumbnail creation (using Icaros?) does not use the metadata to rotate thumbnails correctly.

Thank you.

It already rotates.

You need to clean the Windows thumbnail cache.

Use cleanmgr.exe and reboot afterwards.

I have attached two videos with this problem. One has rotation=90 and the Other rotation=180. I also attached a picture of how it looks on my computer.

I tried the Disk Cleanup tool (cleanmgr.exe) to clean the thumbnails but the problem remains.
Before posting this, I even tried installing K-Lite Codec Pack Mega (default settings) on a freshly installed Windows 11 with only Intel and Nvidia drivers installed by me, and I got the same result as in the picture attached.

The icaros developer will check it.
