Take a look at ticket #303. I saw that daniel added an up-to-date patch.
If you fill in the extensions in the REG_MEDIA_HANDLER to suit your needs
it should work. As an example, I have the mythgallery mediahandler defined
  REG_MEDIA_HANDLER("MythGallery Media Handler", "", "", handleMedia,
                      MEDIATYPE_MGALLERY, "jpg,jpeg,png,tiff,bmp,gif");
