  12. Repeat steps 9 through 11 to delete the Video and Audio content types.

Create and Configure an Assets Library for Thumbnails

  2. From the Site Actions control, select More Options.
  3. Select Asset Library and enter the name AssetThumbnails.
  4. On the Ribbon, click Library tab.

  6. Click the Video content type.
  7. Select Delete This Content Type.
  8. Click OK.
  9. Click the Audio content type.
  10. Select Delete This Content Type.
  11. Click OK.

Add Video Assets to the Library

  1. Upload some videos to the library we created
