For [1] I have started to implement Streaming for audio and video using 
the Media Source API, the app is retrieving chunks and is appending them 
to the "source" of audio/video tags.

This was supposed to be simple but it is not, the API (or at least the 
Chrome implementation) seems to handle only adaptive rate/manifest 
structures both for mp4 and webm, it's unclear if the audio tag is 

I am not an expert in video/audio format but I don't see very well 
what's the issue to append chunks to a destination, or to turn it into a 
stream (since I am participating to the Streams API, I know it's not 
there yet) outside of other interfaces such as WebRTC.

For the final phase of the project, WebRTC will be used but with 
DataChannels, so the issue remains.

I have looked in all existing APIs and unless I am missing something, I 
still don't see how to achieve this simple thing, how can it be done?
