Drupal Answers is a question and answer site for Drupal developers and administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Using drupal 7.20, Media 7.x-2.0-unstable7, Media Youtube 7.x-2.0-rc2, File Entity 7.x-2.0-unstable7, Entity View Modes latest version.

Created new content type called "video", added video field type "Multimedia asset", Allowed remote media types "Video", Allowed URI schemes "youtube:// (YouTube videos)", "public:// (Public files)"

With Views 3 i am displaying Content: Video, File view mode "video_preset" (preset i created with Entity View modes module). But it only displaying an image, is there any working way to make that image a link?

Already tried "rewriting output of this field" thing, that not working at all.

Did you check the box "Link file to referencing entity" on admin/structure/file-types/manage/video/file-display ?

Maybe you could try the http://drupal.org/project/file_entity_link module?

Thanks, but its not working for video field (media module)... –  Heihachi Feb 26 '13 at 16:32

I was using Mutlimedia Asset field type thats why file entity link didn't worked. So i changed my video field type to file -> media selector and link worked!

@Heihachi file_entity_link module worked for me...

I too was facing the same issue. This module is very simple to configure. You just need to go to admin/structure/file-types/manage/video/file-display/ Scroll down and next to Save button you have Link file to Referencing entity.... enter image description here

Just click the save button and your video images would become linkable...!!!

You need to add this module, then the above answers will work:
