Post Formats, not Custom Post Types

This is for Zac Gordon: At the end of this video you're referencing Custom Post Types, but in actuality you're referencing Post Formats. Right? This is very confusing when you do a compare on the information you shared and the WordPress Codex.

Just tagging Zac Gordon so maybe he has a better chance of seeing this. :)

This seems to still be a relevant question and if there's an answer for it I'd love to hear it!

Both custom post types and post formats can be used when naming templates. For example, if you had a custom post type called "Books", you would name the file "content-books.php".
