Share some interesting media formats here! I'm particularly interested in Flexidiscs.
The Museum of Obsolete Media has an excellent track record of these formats, I recommend checking their website out!

Apparently, they were small, flexible, vinyl discs you could store music, or even floppy disc data on.

Flexplay is such an obscure and discontinued video format.
It was apparently a kind of DVD that stopped you from watching after 48 hours.

Did anyone else remember the HitClips and/or HitClips Disc? I never owned one, but it's a peculiar media format (“toy media storage”?) anyways so it still counts.

Do EVDs count? There are only 4 movies in total made for the EVD format, 3 of them being movies which I'm not sure are allowed on Scratch and the other being Big Momma's House (no, I am not yanking your chain )

Forums were down, now they're not!

Not really a media FORMAT, but it's still an obsolete app. (we are mostly talking about physical media formats)

Sorry, you have to wait 60 millennia between posts.
