When and how to use this component

These thumbnails display a caption describing the media item along with a visual icon to distinguish between video clips, audio clips and images. It should always be used with the Gallery dialog component, which allows the user to visualize the media in a bigger size and access additional controls for video and audio playback. (The Gallery dialog component needs to be enabled).
