Re: [sdw] WebVMT: Investigate better out-of-band link handling (#1107)

In the generic case, there is a list of files to assemble together, for instance a video file, a subtitles file, and a WebVMT file. If you start from any of these files, you cannot find the other two. A link from the WebVMT file to the media file won't give you the subtitles file.

In the media world, the usual approach to link these files together is to embed them in a media container to get back to a situation where there is only one file. On the Web, the usual approach is to create a fourth file that links to the 3 files, and to use this fourth file as starting point.
