Extensible Binary Meta Language
Magic number 1a 45 df a3
Extended to Matroska

Extensible Binary Meta Language (EBML) is a generalized file format for any kind of data, aiming to be a binary equivalent to XML. It provides a basic framework for storing data in XML-like tags. It was originally developed for the Matroska audio/video container format.[1][2][3]

EBML is not extensible in the same way that XML is, as the Document Type Definition must be known in advance.
