Troubleshooting Steps

1. Confirm whether the asset(s) shared are displaying thumbnail previews in the DAM

  • As best practice, it is important to ensure recently uploaded assets in the DAM are displaying a thumbnail preview before sharing them out via a Web Gallery link.

    • Sometimes assets may fail to render thumbnail previews in the DAM i.e. continue to display a "Processing..." display image in the DAM. In this case, please contact support@mediavalet.com as it is possible the file type may not be supported. 

  • By default, Low-Resolution thumbnails are generated the quickest. For example, if a video file has been recently uploaded to the DAM and needs to be shared out quickly, ensure that the "Low Resolution"/360p option is selected when creating a Web Gallery share link as seen below
  • A higher resolution can be shared at a later point once all renditions have processed completely.


2. Confirm whether the asset(s) shared are either checked out or Rejected

  • With our latest dynamic web galleries feature, any assets that are in a "Checked Out" state or have a "Rejected" status will not display in the shared web gallery.

  • Simply "Approve" and/or Undo the Checkout of the asset and refresh the web gallery to resolve this.


3. Validate how many assets were shared via the Web Gallery link prepared

  • Web Galleries are a great way to share out a large number of files externally in a short time span. However, depending on the number of files being shared out in a batch, it can take a few minutes to prepare and consolidate the files being shared via a Web Gallery.
  • As best practice, if 100+ assets or a very large file sizes are being shared via a Web Gallery, wait for a few minutes before performing a hard refresh for the Web Gallery link to confirm if the assets are displaying successfully.
