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
