Good day,

FYI, I've just sent the attached email to IETF to progress our I-Ds.
There are also links to updated documents in this email.

Subject: New I-Ds for Ogg technologies (Vorbis over RTP, Ogg file
format, Mimetypes)

Hello everybody,

everal new I-Ds have been submitted from the Ogg community this week.
The intention of our submissions is to gain IETF standards on the freely
available and open media technologies that are developed in the Ogg
community (http://www.xiph.org/). Required standards embrace things like
container format specifications, rtp transport specifications, and MIME
type specifications. The listed I-Ds are the currently existing
submissions, which we would like to see discussed here. This is also a
request to the Area Directors to progress them onto the standards track.


The first two I-Ds relate to a persistent container format that was
specified to hold Internet transportable media data in a simple way.
These should be simple to handle as they have been discussed on this
list before and the format is stable:

1) "The application/ogg Media Type"
Author(s)       : L. Walleij

This is an I-D requesting to register "application/ogg" as a mime-type
for any bitstream that conforms to the Ogg bitstream format
specification (see I-D below).

<p>2) "The Ogg encapsulation format version 0"
Author(s)       : S. Pfeiffer

This I-D specifies the Ogg bitstream format version 0, which is a
general, freely-available encapsulation format for media streams. It is
capable to encapsulate any kind and number of video and audio encoding
formats as well as other data streams in a single bitstream.


The next two I-Ds relate to transporting audio data encoded in the
Vorbis format over rtp:

3) "RTP Payload Format for Vorbis Encoded Audio"
Author(s)       : P. Kerr
This document describes a RTP payload format for transporting Vorbis
encoded audio.

<p>4) "The audio/rtp-vorbis MIME Type"
Author(s)       : B. Short
This document explains the need for a MIME subtype which identifies a
Vorbis audio payload to be used within a Realtime Transport Protocol
(RTP) bitstream. This document also provides the necessary information
to register
audio/rtp-vorbis as a MIME type.
