Dear Thierry,

Thank you also for your second reply below.  There seem to be many
details for video formats in the Media API spec, but all the audio
format parameters seem to assume that audio will be accessed in PCM
format such as audio/L16.  If that is the intention, then I would ask
only that the PCM sample size (e.g., 16 bits) be included as a
parameter along with the sampling rate.  Is that acceptable?

Best regards,
James Salsman
