LeMill has media conversion capabilities

LeMill can accept nearly any image, sound, video or office formats and convert them to proper formats. See #1260 for some details. As these tools require a bunch of external libraries and tools, this should be implemented as a plugin that can be enabled or disabled. And since media conversion can take quite a bit of time, it should actually be a separate daemon process that handles media conversion.

We should get an estimate on how much time implementing this would take, so we can prioritize it properly.

I would say two to three weeks to implement the basic daemon which can convert image, sound and video (using imagemagick and ffmpeg).

Can't say much about office formats. Powerpoint to images conversion is the easiest one and it may be possible to implement in a few hours after the core is ready, but it could take much more time (hopefully a week at most). The other conversions would take way more time, probably at the scale of months.
