Thanks for the clarification.

In the three file case you describe, and further to [items b and c above](https://github.com/w3c/sdw/issues/1107#issuecomment-459321958), the WebVMT media block allows the media to be found from the VMT file, which addresses your issue. It doesn't allow the subtitle file to be found, which is beyond the scope of WebVMT, or allow the media file to find the VMT file as no content is embedded, i.e. by design. 

Perhaps we should include the media world embedded use case in the Editor's Draft as a way to explore that idea, either as an example or a use case. I hadn't considered using WebVMT in this way, and agree that it would potentially create a bidirectional link, thought this could be addressed in the media block by omitting the [media url](http://w3c.github.io/sdw/proposals/geotagging/webvmt/#dfn-media-url), as there is no linked media if it's already embedded.

The HTML file ([item a above](https://github.com/w3c/sdw/issues/1107#issuecomment-459321958)) provides the fourth file for the webpage use case.

Does that address your concerns?
