Allow multiple formats/resolutions for media-content
Would need to allow uploading more than one version for one media-element (maybe mp4 and webm). And if multiple formats exist that would be possible to use (like different resolutions) it would be great to be able to choose which one to display (like YouTube allows switchting resultions).
Having the possibility to handle multiple media-files for one element would also allow to offer different formats inside an HTML5-videoplayer to match the different browser-tastes (no MP4 for Mozilla, no WebM on iPad).

- Category set to File Abstraction Layer (FAL)

FAL still doesn't have a possibility for multiple files that belong to a certain master-file - like re-encoded versions of a video, specially cropped version of an image etc. We've discussed that occasionally with some folks and it would be nice to come up with a solution here. Maybe something that could be considered to discuss at the FAL-sprint? I'll ping Mathias.

About the "specially cropped version of an image" I think that this has been achieved in version 8 (in a different way) with the "multiple cropping variants" (https://docs.typo3.org/typo3cms/extensions/core/8.7/Changelog/8.6/Feature-75880-ImplementMultipleCroppingVariantsInImageManipulationTool.html)

with the current implementation of image variants / cropping variants, I do think the image issue is solved via FAL / Fluid and various cropping formats.
However, when it comes to video formats, can you elaborate what exactly you think Core should handle?
Is it that you can relate files to each other? And then, how would capabilities be defined?

I was thinking of video-tags with multiple sources (separate files, but belonging together). Like here:
<video width="320" height="240" controls>
<source src="movie.mp4" type="video/mp4">
<source src="movie.ogg" type="video/ogg">
Your browser does not support the video tag.
Of course it could be rendered different in the frontend, if need be.

I'm not so familiar with all the side effects that come with the relations, localization, workspaces, etc. but would this be a possible or good way to solve it?
