SharePoint 2016 New Features – Image and Video Previews

SharePoint Server 2016 is released with numerous new features, image and video preview is one of them. When you upload images and videos to a document library in SharePoint server 2016, you can see a preview by hovering the mouse over the image or video, or by clicking on them.

In this blog, I will introduce this new feature.

First, create a document library and name it as File Library.

And then, upload some images to the document library.

sharepoint-2010-document-preview-1

Click one of the images in the library, you will see a preview of the image in popup as following.

sharepoint-2010-document-preview-2

Click Close to return the document library.

Now, I upload a video in the document library.

sharepoint-2010-document-preview-3

And then, click the video in the library. A popup will open as following.

sharepoint-2010-document-preview-4

In the context menu, you can stop/play the video, change volume or enter full-screen mode.

    Hello Cathy,
    thanks for the listing. You’ll have to admit – some of these new features were already (very!) often demanded by the community and it was just a matter of time that they finally release things like the Image and Video preview … ;-)

    Kind regards from Germany
    Tobias
