I was trying to improve some of my work templates using Essential Graphics, which I absolutely love, for the first time I'm adding the media replacement function to it but it doesn't seem to work.

I've tried images, videos and an actual AE placeholder but it just doesn't seem to accept any of my assets.

Check this tutorial at 05:30 where she successfully achieves what I'm trying to do.

I'm wondering if anyone else has encountered the same issue, I'm probably doing something wrong but I don't seem to see where.

Even though Essential Graphics have been available for a few years now, Replace Media is available around After Effects v18.0, be sure to update your app.
