When joining a live session, the timestamp of the first coded frame received is
typically not zero. To have proper playback (not have the player stall), the
web apps needs to set the timestampOffset attribute of the SourceBuffer. In
some cases, such as using MPEG-DASH, an approximate timestamp might be provided
in the manifest. However, in many cases, the web app will have to parse the
media data in JavaScript, which is not optimal. It would be preferable to be
able to force an automatic offset, or to set/force the timestamp to zero.
Alternatively, it could be interesting to have a method to ask the media engine
to parse and return the timestamp range of some data, so that the app can then
transfer the data to the sourcebuffer with the right timestampOffset.
