Re: [videoblogging] MPEG-4 mime type on "42 Steps "

Wicked pissa, boyz.

IANA documentation on canonical mime types is here:
http://www.iana.org/assignments/media-types/video/

A seemingly relevant type is here:
http://www.rfc-editor.org/rfc/rfc3640.txt

That defines a mime subtype of mpeg4-generic, meaning that the bit after
the slash would be mpeg4-generic, meaning that the complete thing would be
something like video/mpeg4-generic. However mpeg4-generic is surely wrong
for our purposes (yup, I was wrong before) because it is only for mp4
items served via the RTP protocol:
File extension(s):
None. A file format with the extension .mp4 has been defined for
MPEG-4 content but is not directly correlated with this MIME type for
which the sole purpose is RTP transport.

Obviously I'm only talking about what is canical there, not what works
in real life. See http://diveintomark.org/archives/2004/08/16/specs (if
you haven't already) on morons, assholes, angels and experts to keep this
all in perspective.

I need to spend more time browsing the specs and maybe talking to The
Committee before I figure out what type we should be using. But I swear
this is worth doing — get it right and life becomes easier.
