Configure video thumbnails

Before running the commands shown on this page, you should load the Bitnami stack environment by executing the installdir/use_APPNAME script (Linux and MacOS) or by clicking the shortcut in the Start Menu under “Start -> Bitnami APPNAME Stack -> Application console” (Windows). On OS X VMs, the installation directory is /opt/bitnami and OS X VM users can click the “Open Terminal” button to run commands. Learn more about the Bitnami stack environment and about OS X VMs.

You must install ffmpeg and qt-faststart on your system to get video thumbnails working.

  • On Ubuntu, install them by executing the following commands:

    $ sudo apt-get update
    $ sudo apt-get install ffmpeg
    $ sudo apt-get install libav-tools
  • On CentOS, install them by executing the following commands:

    $ sudo yum install epel-release
    $ sudo yum localinstall --nogpgcheck
    $ sudo yum install ffmpeg ffmpeg-devel
  • Once these programs are installed, check the path to ffmpeg:

    $ which ffmpeg
  • Navigate to the Pimcore admin panel at “Settings -> System Settings -> Assets” and add the full path to the ffmpeg binary.

For more information, refer to the official documentation.
