Compared to Media Preview, this is much more updated, way faster in terms of thumbnailing and refreshing the thumbnail cache, and has a straightforward, more beautiful, and overall better UI as well. My main reason for switching to this is because Media Preview cannot handle VP9 at all. Consequently, when Media Preview attempts to generate a thumbnail for a VP9 video, accessing directories and files via File Explorer becomes virtually impossible. This is not the case for Icaros.

Works for everything I want it to except animated WEBP, works well for still WEBP but not animated.
