There is more to multimedia technology than just the audio and video codecs. Container formats are responsible for organizing the data on disk and network protocols are in charge of sending the data over the internet. There is a plethora of subtitle formats that display textual information along with video. And do not discount the wide array of game-related formats that helped pioneer the field.

One goal of the MultimediaWiki is to open up the field of multimedia technology to a wider audience of multimedia hackers. To that end, the Wiki facilitates research into software reverse engineering techniques. It also attempts to catalog which multimedia formats have yet to be discovered and documented.
