Description

We already have this format:

<objectFormat>
    <formatId>video/mpeg</formatId>
    <formatName>MPEG-1 Video</formatName>
    <formatType>DATA</formatType>
    <mediaType name="video/mpeg"/>
    <extension>mpg</extension>
</objectFormat>

It clearly says MPEG-1 Video but there is also an MPEG-2 format. It'd be useful to have a proper format ID to use for MPEG-2 video. The info for MPEG-2 is largely the same as for MPEG-1 (format type, mediaType, extension). Should we add a new format or just update the description of the existing one? We also have an MP4 format type so maybe that'd be a reason to just add another to cover MPEG-2.

History

#1 Updated by Chris Jones over 2 years ago

I'd suggest we add new format types for the various MPEG standards (1, 2, 4). We'll need to evaluate the IANA registry and see how they are differentiated with media types.
