Two W3C Candidate Recommendations published for HTML Media Extensions

The HTML Media Extensions Working Group invites implementation of the Candidate Recommendation of two documents:

  • Media Source Extensions: This specification extends HTMLMediaElement (HTML51) to allow JavaScript to generate media streams for playback. Allowing JavaScript to generate streams facilitates a variety of use cases like adaptive streaming and time shifting live streams.
  • Encrypted Media Extensions: This proposal extends HTMLMediaElement (HTML5) providing APIs to control playback of encrypted content.
