Description:

HTML5 video and audio tags should support continuous streaming as is common in traditional television and radio broadcast channels. This might be a single segment continuously encoded that has no defined length.

  1. This must work for both adaptive and non-adaptive codecs.


Motivation:

  1. Support for linear broadcast television programming and continuous streaming over the Internet.


Dependencies:

  1. None


What needs to be standardized

  1. One or more methods need to be defined for specifying continuous monolithic media streams.
  2. A method for a consistent time base must be developed in order to support ad insertion, synchronized media, etc.
