Description Simon Pieters 2010-10-25 14:12:02 UTC

The text on <video poster> assumes that there will be video data in the media resource. What if there isn't? I think the poster should show all the time in that case.
Comment 1 Tab Atkins Jr. 2010-10-25 17:07:02 UTC
Agreed.  It seems like this would be useful for a common audio player presentation I see on the web, where, as the music plays, the CD cover is shown.
