Watch Video template[edit]

This is a partial workaround for bugzilla:23160 "Theora video thumbnails corrupt".

A prototype template to display a chosen thumbnail for an audio or video file. This allows the user to choose any image as a thumbnail and not be restricted to the frames inside the video. For example, the user may wish to display a logo or explanatory label instead.

  • thumbnail image could be empty
  • file may be audio only, video only, or audio and video

Note that File:Test Cal ifps25fr25 q10.ogv was used to workaround incorrect thumbnail rendering in 2010, but in 2012 it was marked as duplicate and so might be deleted; the issue appears solvable after purging of File:Cal ifps25fr25 q10.ogv. Deleting probably pointless as it would only increase the disk space used.

The above does not quite emulate the layout of the normal embedded media file.

This code:

{{User:84user/Thumbnail
| file = Test Cal ifps25fr25 q10.ogv
| image = Calibration-test-white.png
| align = left
}}


displays the following:
