It's a good software, but I still use Medi * Pr * view (last update 2014) because I have many videos that have (cover art) images of different names * .jpg and recognize them for the thumbnails (icaros only recognizes cover.jpg and not the images with another name * .jpg).

It would be much better if they added that function to the program so that it recognizes images of any name within the video and not just the name cover

I love Icaros. It really do a good job for almost any file.
Only encounter few (really) minor issues:
- CBR previews (comic picture archives) are not grabbed;
- PDF previews need (for what I know) Adobe Reader installed and some of them are displayed corrupted (but could be a bad implementation on their side);
- SWF previews are not grabbed in most cases.

But honestly, Icaros really fix the thumb-mess in windows :)
