Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

If I have a FAQ or some little known information should I phrase my question as a FAQ instead of a question when posting on Stack Overflow or is this type of post frowned upon?

Are you talking about programming information or Stack Overflow information? – mmyers Apr 14 '10 at 21:15

Could you explain how a question and a FAQ would differ in your case? – Ladybug Killer Apr 14 '10 at 21:16
    
IT would essentially be information regarding parsing MP4 files. More than what atomicparsley offers. I would include things like tips when accessing the file in different languages and general file information as well as some gotcha's I have learned about. – DeanMc Apr 14 '10 at 21:53

Write it in the form of a question, then answer it yourself after a day.

@DeanMc: And no need to answer it yourself if someone else says essentially what you would answer. Accepting a self-answer with nearly identical content is frowned upon by most. (But posting your answer and accept someone else's nearly-identical answer would be fine.) – Gnome Apr 14 '10 at 23:58
    
I'l Keep that in mind. – DeanMc Apr 15 '10 at 0:42
