--- Comment #1 from Adrian Bateman [MSFT] <adrianba@microsoft.com> ---
The HTML5 spec says: "The AudioTrack.id and VideoTrack.id attributes must
return the identifier of the track, if it has one, or the empty string
otherwise. If the media resource is in a format that supports the Media
Fragments URI fragment identifier syntax, the identifier returned for a
particular track must be the same identifier that would enable the track if
used as the name of a track in the track dimension of such a fragment
identifier. [MEDIAFRAG]"

Could we say that is a buffer is initialized with a single video/single audio
track segment then the initial ID is maintained even if subsequent buffers have
a different ID? Then for multi-track segments, the IDs must match. This makes
the IDs predictable if the format includes an ID.

Is there a situation where we might need IDs distinct from HTML5, which allows
an empty string if an ID is not available?
