optional, single



All <audio>, <image>, and lt;video> files have to be declared inside the <mediadata> section. In the following main sections only cross-references are needed to be made. Additional information given with a certain media file is globally known through the referentiation and needs to be set only once, too.

The <mediadata> section appears after <generator> and before <maker>.

The centralisation of all media data in a separate section enhances easy ex- and import between different UDDF files.
