The Media libraries module enables storing of various files, such as photos, audios, videos, package files, presentation files, etc. This means that not only media files, but also other types of files can be stored in media libraries. Media libraries can either be global or related to a particular group.
However, the Media libraries module is not the only way to store files of various kinds within the system. There are other ways available of dealing with files in Kentico CMS. Please refer to the Content management -> File management chapter of this guide for more details.
