           Summary: playbackrate: undefined behavior when the user agent
                    can't play back at the requested rate
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: HTML5 spec (editor: Ian Hickson)
        AssignedTo: ian@hixie.ch
        ReportedBy: franko@microsoft.com

In section 4.8.9.8:
The spec does not define correct behavior when the user agent is not able to
play back media at a requeted rate. (For example, the author sets playbackrate
to a negative value, and the user agent does not support negative playback
rates)
Currenty, all browsers seem to handle this differently.

SUGGESTED CHANGE:
(Addition to spec)
If the user agent is unable to play back media at the requested rate, ignore
the requested rate; playbackrate must not change.
