Dear Media Fragmenters,

Following WebKit, Media Fragments support has now landed in Chromium,
too [0a]. This is not really surprising, since the Media Fragments
"bug" (feature request) [1a] was closed a couple of days ago in
WebKit, thanks to Apple's Eric Carlson.

On a related note, I have posted the following to an internal list:

===
Support YouTube in-video deep links following the W3C Media Fragments standard
---
YouTube currently allows for placing deep links following the
#t={digits}m:{digits}s format as documented in [1]. An example is
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nc9xq-TVyHI#t=01m45s.

Now that Firefox [3], WebKit / Chromium [4] support temporal
dimensions of the W3C Media Fragments URI specification [2], I think
it might be a good idea in YouTube to officially support the format as
defined by the W3C specification, alongside the current format, with
the long-term goal of making the W3C specified format the standard.
Any thoughts?

Full disclosure: I am a member of the W3C Media Fragments Working Group.
