Encoding/Formats/Packages



The "essence" needs to be encoded according to some scheme.  The encoded essence then needs to be placed into a formal file format that can be played.  It then may also be placed into a package/container that might: control administrative and structural metadata, control different streams, handle different data types, etc.  Some file formats are also packinging/containers.
