"Use Case Eight – Download and Go"

Description: Using a web browser, a user downloads a series of videos onto a tablet, intending to use them to entertain the kids on a road trip.

Alternative: Using a web browser, a user downloads a series of videos onto a TV with storages and then plays some of them on TV until midnight. After that, the user copies the stored video from TV to the smart phone via home network, intending to watch the rest of them in airplane on business trip. Need/justification: Accessing live video streams may not be possible (e.g. no network, or per content provider policy) or desirable (e.g. due to data usage or low QoE) when mobile or away from home. Nonetheless with video-capable devices, there will be a desire to be able to watch videos even in those circumstances.

Status: WIP

Accessibility Requirements:

  • Whenever a media asset is downloaded for local storage and playback, all related out-of-band accessibility assets (closed captions, picture-in-picture sign language, transcripts, etc.) MUST also be available for download and storage as well (preserve dependencies), the user-agent MAY offer the option to select specific assets prior to download (for example, the user chooses to download the Caption file, but omit the Transcript).
  • The Download and Storage of the supplemental assets SHOULD preserve a local hierarchy tree, to maintain authored dependencies (precedent: when a “web page” is downloaded and saved locally, the file directory structure is preserved in the download – for example a new local directory is created for “images”). Alternatively, as part of the download, the user-agent dynamically re-writes the dependency tree (to facilitate storage needs – for example places all files inside of a .zip or .cab file), and re-interprets those dependencies maintaining the programmatic link between the multiple assets.

"Use Case Nine – Watch and Record"

Description: Using a web browser, a user watches a video and records it for later playback at the same time.

Need/justification: Ability to record a video for later playback while simultaneously watching the same video is a basic thing that many users will expect.

Status: WIP

Accessibility Requirements:

  • Whenever a media asset is recorded to local storage for subsequent playback, all related out-of-band accessibility assets (closed captions, picture-in-picture sign language, transcripts, etc.) MUST also be available for recording and storage as well. The user-agent MAY offer the option to select specific assets to be recorded (for example, the user chooses to record the Caption file, but omit the Transcript).
  • The Storage of the supplemental assets SHOULD preserve a local hierarchy tree, to maintain authored dependencies .Alternatively, as part of the recording process, the user-agent dynamically re-writes the dependency tree (to facilitate storage needs – for example places all files inside of a .zip, or.cab file, or common directory), and re-interprets those dependencies maintaining the programmatic link between the multiple assets.
