About Media entity

Basic concepts

Media entity provides a 'base' entity for media. This is a very basic entity which can reference to all kinds of media-objects (local files, YouTube videos, Tweets, Instagram photos, ...). Media entity provides a relation between Drupal and the media resource. You can reference to/use this entity within any other Drupal entity.

This module attempts to provide the base storage component for the Drupal 8 media ecosystem.

Once installed, a new entity type will be available (type: "media"). Please note that the different "types" of entities (known as "bundles") will be provided by other contrib modules (see further on this manual). The main media_entity module only defines the base API for other modules to build their own bundle-specific logic on the top of it.
