Wikipedia have an article for Plurmedio. But medio stands for environment.

You can find aŭdvidaĵaj dosieroj here and there as a translation, but a multimedia file can contain text, 3D assets, and so on, so the adjective is at best misguiding.

Komputeko also have

  • crossmedia translated as plurkomunikila. Leaving alone the "cross" lexem, komunikil/a seems less problematic than the two previous one, although to my mind not enough accurate, and the PIV defintion doesn't match perfectly.
  • datumportilo, constructed as "semaphore" (the thing porting some meaning)
  • registraĵo which is to my mind the best option I found so far.

Maybe one may build a better word, like "ajn-daten-tipo", do "ajntipa dosiero" or "ajnspeca dosiero".

Do you know any other, possibly better, option?

I would just say dosiero since it already understood that files can be of different types.

If you have to be specific:

  • filmeta dosiero
  • sona dosiero
  • teksta dosiero
  • Well, the thing is to specifically say the file have potentially several types. To give more context, I'm translating documentation of Mediawiki, and related projects. Commented Jan 22, 2017 at 8:57
  • Thus said, your answer seems relevant to my mind. Commented Jan 22, 2017 at 9:05
