4.6.6 Managing Files

CoreMedia CMS can be used to manage any kinds of files. Accordingly, you can in principle insert a wide range of media items into your content item – such as image files, audio recordings or Word files. Your content types define the exact kinds of media items that you can manage and the kinds of CoreMedia content items you can insert these into.

Certain formats are particularly well supported for the user: for image files, for example, a preview image is displayed. As a minimum, the type and size of the file is shown for all files.

You can either create an appropriate content item and import an external file later, as described below, or use the Create menu to create a content item from an external file as described in Section, “Uploading Files”.
