This registry is intended to enhance interoperability among implementations and users of
SourceBuffer objects described in the
Media Source Extensions(MSE) specification. In particular, this registry provides the means (1) to identify
and avoid MIME-type collisions among byte stream formats, and (2) to disclose information about byte stream formats accepted by MSE
implementations to promote interoperability.
The registry maintains a mapping between MIME-type/subtype pairs and byte stream format specifications. The byte stream format specifications describe the
structure and semantics of byte streams accepted by
created with the associated MIME-type/subtype pair.
This registry is not intended to include any information on whether a byte stream format is encumbered by intellectual property claims. Implementors and users are advised to seek appropriate legal counsel in this matter if they intend to implement or use a specific byte stream format.
If a registration fails to satisfy a mandatory requirement specified above, then it may be removed from the registry (without prejudice).
