Display options for non-standard media file type

I’m using strapi to provide a catalog of some 3D models in glTF, glb and USDZ formats. The standard admin ui doesn’t provide any preview capability for those (which is fine), but also the standard single media field type displays nothing whatsoever about the file.

For example, see the “source” field in the following screenshot:

Seeing the file name would be very helpful - is there a way to configure that?

Hello Stephent, have you found a solution for your problem since ? We are comparing CMS like Strapi for a 3D models catalog also. Thanks for your help :slight_smile:

Hi @Akhu - no, not so far. With Strapi v4 coming along, I figured last year wasn’t the time to try customizing a v3 UI.

Now if only there was v3 to v4 migration guide, maybe I’d be able to move thing forward… :wink:

Hello Stephent, any luck with 3D models?

hi @kat_holi - I have the models uploaded just fine, but still no viewer built into the strapi admin UI. I still haven’t updated to v4, as the migration scripts were finally released for testing just last week. I’d still be interested to look at this again once I get my install updated.
