The W3C Members are now invited to formally review a proposal for a W3C Activity on Video in the Web. Feel free to pitch in as well.

Three charters are proposed:

  1. Timed Text Working Group
  2. Media Fragments Working Group
  3. ?Media Annotations Working Group

It is expected that this activity will be significantly revised in the near future to implement additional steps mentioned at the workshop:

  • Codecs and containers
  • Best practices for video and audio content

Although we have a draft charter for a Best Practices Group, we are still actively investigating the video codecs situation and therefore would like to work on them further before starting a formal review. We decided to request review of a smaller proposal rather than wait further.

I can't reiterate enough the importance of video codecs for the Web, so it's definitively a big lack in the current proposal. We're still looking at this and trying to come up with a path forward. There is not a single week where I don't devote some amount of time on that one.

By the way, I tried to address all the comments sent to If you don't think that one of them was addressed properly or at all, please accept my apologizes and make sure to send me a note pointing them out. I haven't thoroughly tracked all the comments so it's possible that I missed some of them, even if I addressed all the others in the same message. And if I happened not to follow your recommendation, you'll get at least an answer from me at the minimum.
