The sfMediaField directive enables you to select and display a document or a video from the existing libraries in your website. In addition, you can use this directive to upload a document or a video to a library.
After you select a document or a video, the default template lists information about its base properties such as type, size and upload date. You can select another item or edit the properties of the current item. For more information, see Document selector and Video selector.

After you select an item, the item and its ID are stored in their respective scope variables: selectedMedia and selectedMediaId. The mediaProvider variable holds the name of the provider from which to load the document libraries.
NOTE: The document and the video selector can load documents or videos from different providers.
