Here is proposed text, based on what is already in
http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/#text-track-in-band-metadata-track-dispatch-type.
The attachment shows the change with the same formatting as the existing text.



If the media resource is an MPEG-4 file

Let sample entry be the contents of the stsd box, which is contained in the 
stbl box, which is  contained in the minf box, which is contained in the mdia
box, which is contained in the trak box. Let type be the type field of the stsd
box. If type is neither "mett" nor "metx" then the text track in-band metadata
track dispatch type must be set to the empty string. Otherwise, if the type is
"mett" then sample entry is a TextMetaDataSample and the text track in-band
metadata track dispatch type must be set to the concatenation of the string
"mett", a U+0020 SPACE character, and the value of the mime_format field of
TextMetaDataSampleEntry. Otherwise, if the type is "metx" then sample entry is
an XMLMetaDataSampleEntry and the text track in-band metadata track dispatch
type must be set to the concatenation of the string "metx", a U+0020 SPACE
character, and the value of the namespace field of
XMLMetaDataSampleEntry.[MPEG4]
