This Oracle Multimedia package supports the management and manipulation of media data stored in BLOBs and BFILEs. This package can be used in applications that require different types of multimedia data such as image, audio, and video to be stored in the same BLOB or BFILE column.

The Oracle Multimedia ORD_DOC package provides functions and procedures to perform common operations such as exporting multimedia data from Oracle Database into operating system files, and extracting information from multimedia data. Information from image, audio, and video data such as format, mime type, and content length can be extracted into an XML string and optionally into individual attributes.

For a complete description of this package within the context of Oracle Multimedia, see ORD_DOC in the Oracle Multimedia Reference.
