How to set/reset the channel thumbnail in MediaSpace. 

Resolution

The system will create a channel thumbnail based on the media thumbnails of media items in your channel. You can add your own thumbnail from the channel’s view page. You have to be the channel Manager to create a thumbnail.

Note: You will not be able to set a channel thumbnail if you have enabled the channel carousel. 

  1. Navigate to the Channel page
  2. There are two ways to set the channel thumbnail
    • Upload a thumbnail from your hard drive: Channel Actions  > Upload Thumbnail
      • Note: Your image should be in the recommended aspect ratio (16x9)
    • Set a thumbnail from a media item in the channel: Mouse over the media item thumbnail and click the triple dots. Click the Set as channel thumbnail icon on the thumbnail
  3. Click Save

Note: To reset the thumbnail back to an auto-generated one, select Channel Actions  > Reset Thumbnail.

Recommended Aspect Ratio (16x9)

  • Small 546x311
  • Medium 710x400
  • Large 1280x725
