This term usually means anything that you’ve uploaded to your WordPress site.

Images, videos and PDFs are all referred to as media and are accessed via the media library in WordPress.

The WordPress media library can enable you to edit, crop, rotate, resize or add alt tags, names to your media and more.

All media that is on your site will be sat in the Media library, so it’s a great way to see all of your assets and access anything that has already been uploaded or add something new.

To conclude...

Media refers to any documents, images or files that have been uploaded to your site and sit in the Media Library within your theme.
