A detailed list of this group's publications and their status is available.
The Group is currently chartered to continue its work through 31 December 2015.
Membership and Participation
The HTML Media Extensions Working Group encourages active participation from a diverse community, including content authors and content providers, web developers, implementors (of browsers, authoring tools, conformance checkers, etc.) and anyone interested in helping to evolve the HTML Media extensions. A full list of participants is available.
How to join the group
This group operates under the W3C Patent Policy, which ensures that specifications published by the group can be implemented on a royalty-free (RF) basis. To record agreement from all participants with that W3C Patent Policy, joining the group involves completing several steps:
- If you're affiliated with a W3C Member organization
- Otherwise, the process involves getting a W3C Account and filling out a form for copyright, patent, etc. policies.
When you join, you will be subscribed to public-html-media, the publicly archived mailing-list for the group. Consistent failure to follow the Discussion Guidelines will result in removal from the working group.
Communication: Mailing lists and IRC
The primary mailing list for HTML Media Extensions Working Group communication is public-html-media.
The group uses the #html-media channel on irc.w3.org for its weekly telcons and for informal discussion.
W3C maintains a public list of any patent disclosures made in connection with the deliverables of the group; that page also includes instructions for disclosing a patent.
