MPTF/MPTF Discussions/Program Boundary
From Web and TV IG
Tracker Issue ID: ISSUE-46
HTML5 video and audio tags should support the identification of program boundaries in continuous streams to accommodate features associated with the beginning or end of a program (e.g. change in content rating, authorization, etc.).
- This must work for both adaptive and non-adaptive codecs.
- Support for program boundary features even if the video stream is continuous
- Existing standards and practices in use in broadcast television
What needs to be standardized
- Consistent markers and/or time-base to indicate program boundaries in continuous streams (as defined in two other MPTF use cases)
