0x1 mp3
0x2 mpeg4
0x3 theora
0x4 vorbis
0x5 pick one as you wish

You'll have to convert, you need to have the codec table handy when
manually inspecting a file, first come first served applies, you need to
parse this information once at load so having simple int compare or
multiple byte compare doesn't mean much. You may suggest to keep the
code to the least number of bytes and within a certain limit (8,16?).


etc etc etc

looks too insane?
