Description John Foliot 2011-04-23 03:18:36 UTC
The MediaController object currently does not expose an onended event.
This is inconsistent with in-band multitrack media resources and a convenience event that is useful when reacting to the situation of all slave elements being finished. This would for example be the case for a grouped multitrack resource with an ordinary video track and a sign language track, where the ordinary video track should get a display of further related videos once all tracks have finished playing. It would e.g. wait until the sign language track is finished before it displayed further information.

Therefore, we require the addition of a onended event to the MediaController object.

Possibly fixed, but not yet included in the W3C copy:
Comment 2 Laura Carlson 2011-04-29 12:09:58 UTC
Per Martin Kliehm "although the bug-triage sub-team didn't decide on these bugs yet, John mentioned in yesterdays teleconference [1] that there are several important multimedia related bugs where he'd like to add the a11ytf keyword. There was approval".
