Understanding the Media Area in DatoCMS

3m 02s

The media area in DatoCMS is where you'd manage all your images, videos, audio files, and other documents your project might need.

The media view comes with its own customization options to view your files as a list or grid, add some custom filtering options, and similar to the content area, create saved filters for you and your team.

One nifty feature in the media area though, is that you can preview certain files right there, without having to launch the asset. For instance, you can play audio files in the grid to get a quick preview. If you're a Mac user and familiar with previewing files in Finder without opening QuickTime or another app, this will feel just like that!
