Using QuickTime support, preview of any video that is mixed up with your picture is possible. When you place the mouse pointer on any of the image or photograph a large thumbnail view of the picture is visible. But this feature does not work each time some time it fails to give you the view. There is no reason available to this problem. At time when we have to email the picture and click the E-mail button the default mail client is not opened.
