Thank you, Marcos.

The issue is not a big deal. I just suggested to add the following two notes to clarify that the app: URL scheme works for local media playback.

	Note that app: URL can be used for media elements and if seekable seeking works for video and audio resources.
	Note that XHR with the HTTP range header can be used for app URL in such case of playing video/audio resources with Media Source Extensions[MSE].

For example, the following should work fine with app: URL scheme. Do other people share this idea ?

var audio = document.createElement("audio");
audio.src = "sample.mp3";
audio.addEventListener('loadedmetadata', function() {
	audio.currentTime = 15;	// start at the 15 second
	console.log(audio.currentTime === 15 );	// true

var url = "sample.mp3";
var xhr = new XMLHttpRequest();
xhr.open('GET', url, true);
xhr.responseType = "arraybuffer";
xhr.setRequestHeader('Range', 'bytes=100-199');
console.log(Uint8Array(xhr.response).byteLength === 100);	// true

Hi Tatsuya, 
Moving this to the public list...

Unfortunately, we didn't get to discuss it during the f2f. However, I've filed a bug for this:


I agree with you suggestion that we should support streaming media playback (though I be warned that I tend to have an allergic reaction to anything EME;)).  

Can we discuss how we fix the spec to support this there? Your help would be greatly appreciated. 

I would propose we block progressing to LC until we fix this in the spec. Should not be too much work (famous last words, I know).
