 > Is this an approach you have coded and used?

Yes. If you had some code using your mediaType getprop, such as:

   if the mediaType of player 1 is "Video" then -- do something

It could become, for example (a minimal change):

   if the mediaTypes of player 1 contains "Video" then -- do something

Etc. Used successfully in familiar contexts.
