 Recently , i faced a issue , while uploading image in dam , 3 renditions are created automatically for image because of ootb  dam upload asset workflow , but in case of uploading video in 3 different formats i checked no rendition was created and author then need to upload separately thumbnail if he needs thumbnail in case of video , while i need that similarly to image thumbnail renditions to be created while uploading video which is also supported by that workflow as part of documentation , but not functioning in case of video upload and only functioning in case of image upload.

Kindly suggest what needs to be done .

With the OOTB DAM Update Asset workflow, video thumbnails and transcodes are dependent upon ffmpeg being installed. See http://docs.adobe.com/docs/en/aem/6-0/author/page-authoring/default-components/editmode.html#Video

As long as ffmpeg is installed (with the appropriate decoders and encoders) and on your system path, the workflow will generate thumbnails and renditions.

Hi @smacdonald2008 ,

video rendition is ootb in 6.3 and 6.5?

Video renditions ,Installing and Configuring Video Transcoder with FFmpeg (Not showing the content)

Static renditions are generated natively using FFMPEG (installed and available on the system path) and stored in the content repository.  => here i have dbt that static rendition mentioned here!

So the static rendition meant to be which rendition ?

We have option with out using DM (Dynamic Rendition) we will get the if we are installed (FFMPEG PLAYER)in our system thats in aem server`s machine !?...

in AEM 6.3 iam trying to create a video rendition and thumbnail  and with out the Dynamic Rendition. is that works? I

Could you Suggest me ?

AEM does not create different renditions for video - only images:

You can always extend out of the box functionality by writing your own DAM Handler. For information about how to write a custom DAM Handler, see:

When working with a custom DAM Handler - you work with the com.day.cq.dam.api.handler.AssetHandler API.

Recently i have seen same kind of issue where thumbnails are not generated for videos. I have added three services in Dam update Asset workflow for ffmpeg thumbnails generation and transcoding. Please follow this link for complete details.

DAM should automatically create renditions, however if you have problems with videos or want to create alternate renditions you can do with some configuration.

Here are two articles which describe how to create renditions with videos or work with video profiles
