Retrieve thumbnail of indexet result RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I've installed FAST Search Server for SharePoint 2010 and is using the API to retrieve search results. For some results in the frontend there's media in form of a picture included. For example if it's a powerpoint præsentation or something like that. Is it possible to retrieve the pictures ?

    Thanks in advance.

  • The image thumbnails and powerpoint previews are actually created using the mobile API in Office Web Apps, so you should be able to do this yourself if you check the API documentation.

    I don't have any more concrete information at the time being, but I am working on a post about it.

    What is your concrete use case for thumbnails and the powerpoint preview?
