[IDV #YLJ-997185]: IDV - Movie generation in the workshop

Hi Peter,

That is right. However, the current convention is for the value of serviceType 
to be "HTTPServer". Though I'm not sure there are any clients that use this 
value of serviceType to recognize an HTTP download service. Probably better to 
stick with convention for future compatibility.

I would guess this is due to the fact they are being served by OPeNDAP.

If you want to serve the data by more than one service, you need a compound 
service element.

<service name="allServices" serviceType="compound" base="">
  <service name="fileServer" serviceType="HTTPServer" 
base="/thredds/fileServer/" />
  <service name="odapServer" serviceType="OpenDAP" base="/thredds/dodsC/" />
  <service name="wcsServer" serviceType="WCS" base="/thredds/wcs/" />
