Extending Asset and Media Objects in a Headless CMS

Most Headless CMSes will allow you to store media (e.g. images and videos) and other assets (e.g. PDFs, MS Office Docs, Text files, etc) into their repository.  However, the ability to store metadata to describe that asset is usually pretty limited and if you want to store a link (or embed) to a video as an asset, you usually can't.  In this lesson, we are going to create a content model that extends any headless CMS asset or media type to allow us to track a variety of meta data about that asset.
