WordPress has a convenient media gallery that helps you manage all of your media files. Some highlights:
- WordPress scales your media types for you.
- WordPress allows you to organize media into galleries, and insert entire galleries into pages and posts.
- It is suggested that audio and video are embedded from other hosted media providers (SoundCloud, YouTube, Vimeo, etc.), because hosting your own media gets complicated.
- There are a variety of media plugins that can make your media much more customizable, interesting, and interactive. Those will be explored later in the course.
