     (Product) Name: Active Streaming Format (ASF)
     MIME media type name: application

     MIME subtype name:

     Required parameters: none

     Optional parameters: none

     Encoding considerations: ASF files are in a binary format. Some 
     encoding will be necessary for MIME mailers as in 
     application/octet-stream (see RFC 2046).

     Interoperability considerations: Clients must ignore any received 
     ASF content which they do not understand or which they do not know
     how to render.

     Security considerations: ASF content has a security risk equal to 
     that of the media types it carries.

     Published specification:

     Applications which use this media type: Streaming Multimedia 
     applications in (1) Real Time (e.g., Conferencing applications), 
     (2) "On Demand" (e.g., streaming multimedia content 
     for web pages), and (3) store and forward (e.g., Email).

     ASF is a multimedia file format whose contents are designed to be 
     streamed across a network to support distributed multimedia 
     applications.  ASF content may include any combination of any 
     media type (e.g., audio, video, images, URLs, HTML content, MIDI, 
     2D & 3D modeling, scripts, and objects of various types).
