Short url: http://ewp.guide/go/viewing-a-file-in-the-media-library

The Grid View will display a grid of thumbnail images for each of your media files. Depending on the file type, you’ll either see a thumbnail image for that particular file or an icon representation.

After clicking on a thumbnail within the Grid View, a pop-up window will display the properties for that particular file, along with giving you the ability to update certain properties. If the file is an image, you’ll also see a larger version of that image. For supported audio and video files (M4a, MP4, OGG, WebM, FLV, MP3, and WAV) you’ll see the appropriate media player. For other file types such as PDF’s or Word Documents, there is a link to view the attachment page which in turn has a link to the actual file.
