In this dialog, you can make settings related to the Media libraries module. The following settings are available:



Use permanent URLs

If true, URLs of medial library files will be generated in permanent format (~/getmedia/<file guid>/<file name>.<file extension>.<files friendly URL extension>), otherwise direct path to the file will be used (e.g.: ~/MySite/Media/MyLibrary/MyImage.jpg).

Max subfolders

Maximal number of folders that can be displayed under an expanded folder node in the tree view.


Media file allowed extensions

Extensions of files which can be uploaded to media libraries; should be entered divided by semicolons.

Check files permissions

Indicates if the "See media library content" permission is checked when retrieving media files using permanent URLs.


Media libraries folder

Folder where media library files are stored. You can use:


physical disk path - e.g. c:\myfiles\mysite

virtual path - ~/UploadedFiles

UNC path - \\server\folder


If no value is entered, the default location is: ~/<site code name>/media

Use site-specific subfolders for custom media libraries folder

This setting is applied only when a Custom media libraries folder is configured. If enabled, media library files will be stored in a sub-folder named as the site code name under the custom files folder, i.e. <custom media libraries folder>/<site code name>. It is useful for better orientation in files when multiple sites are running in the system.

Media file hidden folder

Name of the folder where thumbnails of media files will be stored; this folder is hidden in the file system by default and thumbnails are generated within it.

Media file thumbnail suffix

Suffix added to thumbnail files; thumbnail files' names are in the following format:

<file name>_<file extension><thumbnail suffix>.<thumbnail extension>

HTML5 support

Render HTML5 media tags

If enabled, the system renders HTML5 <audio> and <video> tags for media content.

Media extensions to be rendered with HTML5

Specifies a list of media extensions to be rendered with HTML5 media tags. Enter a list of extensions separated by a semicolon, e.g. .mp4;.ogg.
