Dear all,

The proposals for the Open Video Conference are due by next Monday [1]! 
This is my first draft. I suggest we propose a *Lecture/Presentation* of 
a duration of *30-45 minutes* for which the abstract would be:

Media resources on the World Wide Web (WWW) used to be treated as 
"foreign" objects, which could only be embedded using a plugin that is 
capable of decoding and interacting with the media resource. The HTML5 
specification is a game changer and most of the popular browsers already 
support the new <video> and <audio> elements. However, to make media a 
"first class citizen" on the Web, it needs to be as easily linkable as 
HTML pages. Only when we can link into media resources, we will really 
be able to share the important parts of a media resource. Only when we 
are able to dynamically choose the tracks that are enabled in a media 
resource, we will really be able to cater for accessibility needs for 
media resources. Only when we are able to navigate through media 
resources based on semantics rather than random guesswork, we will 
really be able to master the full complexity of rich media.

In this talk, we will present prototype implementations of the Media 
Fragments URI specification which is currently being developed by the 
W3C Media Fragments Working Group. The group's mission is to create 
standard addressing schemes for media fragments on the Web using Uniform 
Resource Identifiers (URIs). More specifically, we will show how User 
Agents (UA) will either be able to resolve media fragment URIs without 
help from the server, or will make use of a media fragments-aware 
server. The talk will be composed of explanations of the current 
specification and demonstrations of existing client and server 

Tracker, this is ACTION-165.
Best regards.
