Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: If you're referring to the algorithm that starts "If the specified resource is to be used..." then it isn't relevant when the attribute is missing, since it only applies when there is a specified resource.
Comment 2 Ms2ger 2011-05-01 20:07:18 UTC
Some clarification would be welcome, then. Does "the specified resource" refer to the poster or the video? Also, the algorithm should be run "when the poster attribute is [...] removed", so it seems like it should handle being run without a poster attribute.
Comment 3 Ms2ger 2011-05-08 14:27:15 UTC
So it's correct when I complain, and wrong when you do? I'm confused...
