About this Task Force

The Web & TV Testing Task Force is part of the Web & TV Interest Group. The Task Force is responsible for developing testing requirements specific to Web & TV applications. The focus is expected to be on HTML5 and associated specifications. The Task Force will work with the Web Testing Interest Group and other relevant W3C groups to ensure that Web & TV requirements are met by the W3C testing framework.

Background

Over the last couple of years, much work has been done to provide HTML5 with the features necessary to support commercial video. Adaptive bit-rate video formats, protected content and features required by commercial video regulation have all been developed to support common means of providing commercial video using standard interfaces. Being able to reliably test these new features is a necessary step towards ensuring high-quality implementations that run correctly and consistently on HTML5 browsers. The W3C has recognized the need for testing to encourage consistent and reliable implementation of HTML5-compliant browsers. The Web & TV Testing Task Force will work with other testing efforts in W3C to make sure the W3C tests are rich enough to support Web & TV use cases.

The Web & TV Testing task force will do the following:

  • Collect Web & TV testing use cases (e.g. "Testing a browser embedded in a commercial TV" or "use of W3C tests by third-party certification organizations").
  • List requirements for W3C test too features to achieve the use cases (e.g. "ability to test embedded browsers").
  • List prioritized requirements for W3C specification test coverage to achieve the use cases (e.g. HTML5, Media Source Extensions).
  • Identify gaps in the current test tools.
  • Identify gaps in the current test coverage.
  • List features important to Web & TV members and classify them in terms of testing priority.
  • Work with the Web Testing IG, Browser Testing and Tools WG, HTML Testing TF and other relevant W3C groups to communicate the requirements and develop a strategy to fill the identified gaps.
  • Liaison with external organizations to inform them about the ongoing activities and gather input on the use cases and requirements.

Discussion & Calls

  • This TF primarily conducts its work on the public mailing list at public-web-and-tv@w3.org (archive) by prefixing the email subject with the TF identifier [testing].
  • The Web & TV Testing task force will meet regularly as necessary to complete their objectives in a timely manner. Initially, it is anticipated that the calls will occur on a weekly basis.
  • Collaborative tools (primarily conference calls and IRC) will be used to organize and coordinate work.
  • Face-to-face meetings may be organized periodically if necessary.
  • The kick-off call will be held: TBD
