Constrain file uploads to broadly-supported formats

      Description

      When uploading files to a media block (image, audio, video), add restrictions to limit allowed files to those which work in the supported browsers.

      This work includes research into which formats are supported by which browsers, followed by adding the restrictions.

      Colin Clark has conducted some similar research for his work on Bubbles, and he mentioned that (at the time of filing) h.264-encoded video in MPEG containers and WebM are basically the only broadly-supported formats. This is worth discussing.
