  <media:group>
   <media:content url="http://www.foo.com/song64kbps.mp3" 
   fileSize="1000" bitrate="64" type="audio/mpeg" 
   isDefault="true" expression="full"/>
   <media:content url="http://www.foo.com/song128kbps.mp3" 
   fileSize="2000" bitrate="128" type="audio/mpeg" 
   expression="full"/>
   <media:content url="http://www.foo.com/song256kbps.mp3" 
   fileSize="4000" bitrate="256" type="audio/mpeg"

   <media:content url="http://www.foo.com/song.wav" 
   fileSize="16000" type="audio/x-wav" expression="full"/>
