Naming Convention for Codec ID’s.

Currently, We have 2 different types of Codecs available in this Codec Registry i.e

  • NumCodecs
  • ImageCodecs

The codecs from Numcodecs have already assigned with CodecID’s, but Imagecodecs are not.
So, For ImageCodecs without CodecID’s, The naming convention is, as follows:


And For other codecs, the same will be:




There is no need to assign a new codecID to those codecs which already have one.
