I created a little page in the wiki to solve a problem I keep seeing. 
You have to explain every term you use in the documentation, since a 
lot of users know zilch about streaming/video/audio. This can make the 
documentation really useless or confusing.

The new page's goal is to document as much information about codecs, 
fileformats, protocols etc etc. Their advantages and disadvantages, 
common uses, do's and don'ts. Although mainly consisting of technical 
information, it is intended to be easily understandable by all users. 
Something like a dictionary or a encyclopedia on video/audio 

We can than link to these definitions from our user documentation and 

So if you have a few minutes left, find a new term or anything, please 
expand these pages.

Thank you,
