RE: About Icaros
So as promised, I have another build ready for testing.
This is actually a major update as this build also introduces a new shell extension, that will be known as Icaros Property Handler.
Icaros Property Handler is an MKV property shell extension.
It will add properties such as length(duration), width, height, framerate, channels and sampling frequency to Windows Explorer,
that will be visible in tooltips, preview details, full details (right-click properties), whenever a user clicks or hovers an mkv file.
It will even provide some custom properties, such as; compression (header stripping, zlib etc.), content info, creation application and creation date.
This build also contains various improvements and fixes to Icaros Thumbnail Provider and IcarosConfig.
Get it here:
EDIT by Shark007; The download was removed pending a fix for Explorer crashes on 32bit Operating Systems
Thanks for testing!
Changelog for 1.3.0
[NEW] Icaros Property Handler
- Adds various properties to MKV files in Explorer
Icaros Thumbnail Provider
- Fixed rare crash
- Fixed rare stride related issue
- Various small improvements and fixes
- Moved loading of libraries (dlls) to a background thread
- Seemingly faster startup times
- Dynamic loading of shell extensions
The dynamic loading in IcarosConfig simply means that IcarosConfig will load and use whatever shell extension that is available.
I might reconsider this implementation in the future.
There is quite a bit of changes, so please look out for any regressions and report them here.
Feedback is welcome :-)

Give it another try with this build ;-)
