The real question is knowing which particular types of files your Media Players support and that can be answered by using the ‘Supported Media and Features’ article within the ‘Our Media Players’ section of the Help Centre

Once uploaded, your content will appear in your Asset Library and you can navigate to your ‘Recently Added’ folder to see the new assets.
