Media Management in Drupal

Drupal 8 offers much richer media management capabilities than previous versions of Drupal.

Additional Media Type Support

Although Drupal has long supported images and generic files, Drupal 8 expands on this with a generic "media" field, with support for local audio, video, images, and generic files, as well.

Embedding Remote Content

Drupal 8 also ships with oEmbed support, which allows the embedding of external media, such as YouTube and Vimeo videos.

Media Library (Experimental)

The media library module also lets you select from existing media to place into your post, as well as upload new items directly to the library.
