    If you want to change a menu label, you can hook this action and change the global $menu, $submenu values,

    add_action( 'admin_menu', 'change_media_label' );
    function change_media_label(){
      global $menu, $submenu;
      $menu[10][0] = 'Photos/Videos';
      $submenu['upload.php'][5][0] = 'All Photos/Videos';
      $submenu['upload.php'][10][0] = 'Upload new';
