Ok, so to make this discussion a bit more clear the current setup is:

quicktime files - typefinds at video/quicktime
3gpp files - typefinds as application/x-3gp
mp4 files - typefinds as video/quicktime

qtdemux handles video/quicktime and application/x-3gp as its input caps

qtmux outputs video/quicktime
3gpmux outputs application/x-3gp
mp4mux oututs application/x-iso-mp4

Solution options for going forward -
all formats share the same main name, but get separate attributes, for example:


Or we define 3 separate mimetypes:
application/x-iso-mp4 or application/x-mp4

The gst-typefinder, would need to keep returning video/quicktime for mp4 no
matter what, and I guess the qtdemuxer would need to keep accepting
application/x-3gp no matter what.
