Can I use this for creating listview. Like YouTube RecyclerView Gets Videos Thumbnail in milliseconds (depends on Internet connection).

I never tried it you can try it.

Yes that will work.

Information attached with media file in key-value format.
You should check the link given below that block’s documentation.

Only if link is direct media link like cloudinary gives.

Thank you everyone.

I want duration of video from cloudinary link. Can i use 9 as id for it?

Why not try this

Ok got it. Can we use it in dynamic components extention?


Yes you can.
But in this case I would suggest you to use SetImage method.
