    my $multimedia1 = Elive::StandardV3::Multimedia->upload('c:\\Documents\intro.wav');

or source binary content:

    # 2. source our own binary content
    open (my $fh, '<', $multimedia_path)
        or die "unable to open $multimedia_path: $!";

    my $content = do {local $/ = undef; <$fh>};
    die "no multimedia data: $multimedia_path"
        unless ($content);

    my $multimedia2 = Elive::StandardV3::Multimedia->upload(
                    filename => 'whoops.wav',
                    creatorId =>  'alice',
                    content => $content,
                    description => 'Caravan destroys service station',

You can assign multiple multimedia items to a session:

    $some_session->set_multimedia( [$multimedia1, $multimedia2] );


    my $session_presentations = Elive::StandardV3::Presentation->list(
                                   filter => {sessionId => $my_session->id}

Lists multimedia. You will need to provide a filter that contains at least one of: sessionId, creatorId, description or multimediaId.
