I just started over from the beginning with my computer. I can not remember what codec I used to get my video files to look like the one in the pic below. When you scroll over them you can press play and they will play without opening up them in full. Can you help?

There is no codec needed. OS X supports mp4 files natively. What you need to do is turn on icon preview in Finder. To do so, select Finder, then go to the menu option View, then Show View Options.


Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).
