Everyone has their favorite photo viewer: Lightroom, Windows Explorer, ACDSee, Bridge, etc. But what do people use to browse videos? I don't want to play each video to find the sequence that I want. Has anyone thought of a clever interface to sift through hundreds of travel videos?

I use Windows Live Photo gallery. But you'll need a separate codec pack like Shark's or KLite.

I believe Irfanview will do this as well. Just need to install the separate plug-in pack to get the codecs for it.

You don't mention your OS, but MaxOSX with the proper codecs will show videos in thumbnails and QuickView modes. Though if you have a Mac you probably already know this.
