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 Mac OS X) or by clicking the shortcut in the Start Menu under “Start -> Bitnami APPNAME Stack -> Application console” (Windows). Learn more.

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 add-apt-repository ppa:mc3man/trusty-media $ 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.
