Media Vocabulary

Namespace URI: http://purl.org/media#

It is difficult for a browser to extract semantic information about a media recording described on a web page. Metadata such as performer, creator, publisher,title of the work, release date, download link, related artwork and tags provide relevant context for the media recording, but are currently (2008) inaccessible to computers. In order to enable and encourage the sharing, distribution, syndication, and aggregation of media content, the authors propose the Media RDF vocabulary, an open standard for distributed media metadata. The authors have researched both numerous examples in the wild and earlier attempts at media metadata formats, and have designed the Media RDF Vocabulary around a simple minimal schema for audio content. Feedback is encouraged and open participation is desired from all that are interested in contributing to the open exchange of audio metadata on the Internet.
