How to add pictures to a listview control.

I'm adding the path to the video files to the listview control but i cant figure out how to add an image to each row or item.  here is the code i'm using:

listView1.Items.Clear();
                foreach (string files in Directory.GetFiles(dlg.SelectedPath))
                {
                    if ((files.EndsWith(".avi")) || files.EndsWith(".mpeg"))
                    {
                        listView1.Items.Add(files);
                    }
                }
How can i add an image and only list the name of the file not the whole path?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

This works when you're adding items manually.  I'm trying to add them using the code above.

Don't forget to add picture in picturebox1, or if you have a high memory, try to uncomment //-getimage-
private void button?_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            listView1.Items.Clear();
            FolderBrowserDialog dlg = new FolderBrowserDialog();
            dlg.ShowDialog(); 
            if (dlg.SelectedPath == "") return;
            foreach (string files in Directory.GetFiles(dlg.SelectedPath))
            {
                if ((files.EndsWith(".avi")) || files.EndsWith(".mpeg"))
                {

                    ImageList Imagelist1 = new ImageList();
                    Imagelist1.ColorDepth = ColorDepth.Depth32Bit; 
                    Imagelist1.ImageSize = new Size  (100, 80);
                    
                    
                    
                    listView1.View = View.LargeIcon;
                    listView1.LargeImageList = Imagelist1;


                    ListViewItem ThumbEntry = new ListViewItem();
                    ThumbEntry.Text = files;
                    Imagelist1.Images.Add(pictureBox1.Image);
//-getimage-
//Image i = Image.FromFile(files);
//Imagelist1.Images.Add(i.GetThumbnailImage(100, 80, null, IntPtr.Zero) );


                    ThumbEntry.ImageIndex = Imagelist1.Images.Count - 1;
                    listView1.Items.Add(ThumbEntry);
                }
            }
        }

Probably that will not work, because your dealing with video files not image files.
Instead,  use the picturebox to load image in your listview video image.

OR if you really really want the video image icon? Here it is;
        private void button6_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            listView1.Items.Clear();
            FolderBrowserDialog dlg = new FolderBrowserDialog();
            dlg.ShowDialog(); 
            if (dlg.SelectedPath == "") return;
            foreach (string files in Directory.GetFiles(dlg.SelectedPath))
            {
                if ((files.EndsWith(".avi")) || files.EndsWith(".mpeg"))
                {
                    ImageList Imagelist1 = new ImageList();
                    Imagelist1.ColorDepth = ColorDepth.Depth32Bit; 
                    Imagelist1.ImageSize = new Size  (100, 80);
                    listView1.View = View.LargeIcon;
                    listView1.LargeImageList = Imagelist1;
                    ListViewItem ThumbEntry = new ListViewItem();
                    ThumbEntry.Text = files;

                    Icon eIcon = System.Drawing.Icon.ExtractAssociatedIcon(files);
                    Imagelist1.Images.Add(eIcon);

                    ThumbEntry.ImageIndex = Imagelist1.Images.Count - 1;
                    listView1.Items.Add(ThumbEntry);
                }
            }
        }

This is working so far.  Please look at the following code.  I'm adding my images to a flowlayoutpanel control.  when i select a folder that contains a significant amount of picture it crashes saying "Out of memory"  is there anything i can do to fix it?

private void openFolderToolStripMenuItem_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            FolderBrowserDialog dlg = new FolderBrowserDialog();
            if (dlg.ShowDialog() == DialogResult.OK)
            {
                flowLayoutPanel1.Controls.Clear();

                foreach (string files in Directory.GetFiles(dlg.SelectedPath))
                {
                    GlovalVars.SelPath1 = dlg.SelectedPath;
                    if ((files.EndsWith(".jpg")) || files.EndsWith(".jpeg"))
                    {
                        FileStream st = new FileStream(files, FileMode.Open);
                        PictureBox pb = new PictureBox();
                        pb.SizeMode = PictureBoxSizeMode.StretchImage;
                        pb.Width = 75;
                        pb.Height = 75;
                        pb.Image = Image.FromStream(st);
                        st.Close();
                        flowLayoutPanel1.Controls.Add(pb);
                        pb.Click += new EventHandler(view);

                    }
                }
                           
                listView1.Items.Clear();
                foreach (string files in Directory.GetFiles(dlg.SelectedPath))
                {
                    if ((files.EndsWith(".avi")) || files.EndsWith(".mpeg"))
                    {
                        ImageList Imagelist1 = new ImageList();
                        Imagelist1.ColorDepth = ColorDepth.Depth32Bit;
                        Imagelist1.ImageSize = new Size(25, 25);
                        listView1.View = View.LargeIcon;
                        listView1.LargeImageList = Imagelist1;
                        ListViewItem ThumbEntry = new ListViewItem();

                        FileInfo file = new FileInfo(files);

                        ThumbEntry.Text = file.Name;

                        Icon eIcon = System.Drawing.Icon.ExtractAssociatedIcon(files);
                        Imagelist1.Images.Add(eIcon);

                        ThumbEntry.ImageIndex = Imagelist1.Images.Count - 1;
                        listView1.Items.Add(ThumbEntry);
                    }
                }
            }
        }

//FileInfo file = new FileInfo(files); you dont need this
ThumbEntry.Text = files; //just like this

your possible error is here
>>pb.Image = Image.FromStream(st);

try to make a new image and assign it to pb.image
then close or dispose it before the loop again

How would i do that.  Sorry to bug you but i'm new to this.  The reason why i used the fileinfo is because i wanted to display the filename instead of the whole path.

Image im = Image.FromStream(st);
pb.Image = im.GetThumbnailImage(75, 75, null, IntPtr.Zero);
