Description Olivier Thereaux 2013-04-02 14:41:45 UTC
Per discussion at Audio WG f2f 2013-03-26


"Audio file data can be in any of the formats supported by the audio element"


"...can be accepted in formats containing only audio data (w/o video)"

This is to avoid the overhead of dealing with video containers that have an audio track.

What's the downside of supporting media formats that contain video tracks? I think in our implementation there's no implementation cost to supporting all the formats our HTML media elements support.
