    Please notify projects that use this property before big changes (renaming, deletion, merge with another property, etc.)

    Merge ?Edit

    I think that this property should be merge with Image and renamed "Image". The name of this property explains what it's ("an image of commons") but not the relation , ie it's an "image" of the topic. Tpt (talk) 20:20, 4 February 2013 (UTC)

    Agree, "media file" is a datatype, and will probably be used by many other properties. --Zolo (talk) 20:40, 4 February 2013 (UTC)
    After a discussion in IRC, I've change of opinion and I think we should maybe keep this property only as "mother" property for the others, with a warning in description. Tpt (talk) 21:02, 4 February 2013 (UTC)


    I renamed the property "Video" instead of "Commons media file", since it was only used for video, and there are properties defined for other media types "image", "audio", "road map", "anthem recording", etc. I hope this was ok. I understand that it will require a lot of translation work. Mange01 (talk) 16:32, 8 March 2013 (UTC)

    Ok with me. I found only one non video (Ludwig van Beethoven, Q255) and changed it to "image". --ThorstenX1 (talk) 20:42, 8 March 2013 (UTC)
    This is explicitly wrong; this is the super-type of the other types. James F. (talk) 18:12, 9 March 2013 (UTC)
    … but clearly no-one listens to me, and now we're sort-of stuck with it. :-( James F. (talk) 22:11, 9 May 2013 (UTC)


    Is it okay to use this property also for trailers like on The African Queen (Q384397) or should we create a new property? --Pasleim (talk) 15:09, 30 December 2016 (UTC)

    I asked myself the same question at Wikidata_talk:WikiProject_Movies#Property_for_trailer_.28Q622550.29_.3F, but I didn't have in mind the ones at Commons.

    I have now instance of (P31) as qualifier allowed till another solution for trailers is found. --Pasleim (talk) 19:24, 1 January 2017 (UTC)

    animated GIFEdit

    Are animated GIFs okay with video (P10)? --Pasleim (talk) 12:14, 15 May 2018 (UTC)

    • Probably not. I think I did use it for one or the other pre-1900 films that consisted of a few frames only. Maybe these should be listed as exceptions.
