The files you use or want linked to QR codes need a hyperlink or URL. Once you gather your images, videos, or other media, they need to be stored in a cloud storage system to create a link for each. Microsoft's OneDrive is a great solution to attain this goal. But, there is Dropbox and Google Drive that function in the same way to store files in the cloud. You can create a shareable link within each of these apps.
