Transform options

Media Management provides additional transform options for images and video.

The tables give details of registered file types with information about their available transform options.

You can also view more information about file types and the proxies used to transform them by using the browser command:

localhost:8080/alfresco/service/mimetypes?mimetype=*

where localhost:8080 is the host and port number of your active Alfresco Content Services instance.

Audio and video files are transformable using FFmpeg. Image files are transformable using ImageMagick. The formats listed are in addition to the standard formats as specified in Standard Transform Options.
