Previewing documents and video files | VDRPro

  • Updated

Product: VDRPro
Applies to: Everyone

Depending on your role and how your VDR was set up, you may not be able to perform this task.

You can open a single document without leaving the Documents screen, allowing you to view documents in context. You can preview the following file types:

  • PDF
  • Microsoft Office formats

    XLS and XLSX documents cannot be opened in preview mode.

  • Graphic files – PNG, JPG, BMP, WMF, EMF, GIF, JP2, and JPC
  • Video files – MP4, OGG, and WEBM
  • CAD files – DWG, DWF, DXF, and DGN

    CAD files are converted to PDF format when rendered, which means that animations in three dimensional files cannot be accessed.

  • ODT and ODS
  • ODP

Preview is not available when filters are applied, when using View as, and when documents are IRM-protected.

If you experience freezing or stoppage issues while previewing video, ensure that your internet speed is running at a minimum bitrate of 10 Mbps and that your browser is Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, or Microsoft Edge.
