Configure video thumbnails

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 https://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/el/rpmfusion-free-release-7.noarch.rpm https://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/el/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-7.noarch.rpm
      $ 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.
