Media

Easily manage and embed images, videos, tweets, documents and more.

There is a strong emphasis on Media objects in Drupal 8. Media is now treated as first class type, alongside other content types such as Pages and Articles. This means that Documents (PDFs), Videos and Images all support metadata and are easily discoverable for embedding and linking.

It is possible easily embed the following media types into content:

  • Video: YouTube and Vimeo
  • Images
  • Tweets

We have also worked on consistent display of Documents, making it possible to easily embed them into content. For example, teaser views of documents can be embedded directly into the text of an article.
