Description Philippe Le Hegaret 2010-11-05 13:21:36 UTC
Test: video/video_003


The video/video_003.htm test in HTML5 test seems to be incorrect and doesn't confirm the spec. The spec says that canPlayType('application/octet-stream') must return empty string, but the test passes only when canPlayType('application/octet-stream') != "".
Comment 1 Philippe Le Hegaret 2010-11-16 16:32:46 UTC
The canPlayType(type) method must return the empty string if type is a type that the user agent knows it cannot render or is the type "application/octet-stream";

The test will need to get revised.
