In a Web Browser and for the <video> and <audio> element, these are
not relevant.

In a media/metadata management system, you will likely have the data
in a DB already and your interface is mysql. Also, where the data is
in XML or other text format, writing an access function is really
trivial. It's the metadata that is inside digital binary files that
you need to be worried about.
