Supported audio formats?

What are the supported audio formats? ( I did see a list somewhere, but can't find it in the docs.) I don't think m4a was on that list, but it works on my iPhone and iPad. Is that format platform specific? What formats will work both on iOS and Android?
I have updated the documentation to include all supported types in Android as well as updated the iOS list. 

You can find that here under the type attribute:
