    Default Previewing Explorer Files

    Hey guys, first post so be gentle if i'm being stupid. Been using Vegas for well over a year now and the other week bought a dedicate PC for editing.
    The version first off is 8.0c if this helps.

    So the problem itself. Well on my laptop which is running the same version i usually highlight the file im about to use, hit play (space bar), and the file plays in the preview box. But for some really odd reason i'm not able to do this on my new PC. It plays the file but no video comes through. I have tried a variety of different formats (all with audio) and i still get the same results. Driving me mad now. Don't rrrreeeaaalllyyy need it, but it's a nice and usefull feature.

    Any ideas what i've ticked or not ticked???

    It got me too. It's to do with the new Trimmer facilities in 8.0c. Your preview appears in the trimmer window (8.0b & previous didn't have this).
    To preview in the poreview window instead, Open the trimmer and click on the button which says "show video monitor".

    Great stuff Tim, thanks.
    That makes sense as my laptop runs 8.0a and the new PC is 8.0c.
