Is v2.96 still available anywhere?  I have got the 2.96.1 .zip file for the 
Windows installer, but I can't find a file in it.

I second Alan's comment that your analysis was, as always, fascinating.
I found that for at least some programmes 2.99 found a useable <title>
Have you looked at that?

I don't know if there is any connection with what you say about embedded 
thumbnails, but I have noticed when playing radio files in VLC sometimes it 
displays an image the size of a postage stamp and for other programmes the 
image is the full height of the window.
