Each extension can be associate to given media types (audio, video, play-list and subtitles). It is possible to create/duplicate/destroy file extension container and to alter any of them by adding and removing file extensions. Additionally a general (static) file extension container can be addressed thru the FILEEXT_POOL special container.

So, every demuxer will be able to add extensions?
How would this be cached?

Btw, why using #define instead of enum?
