    ... combination of codecs/file formats

    Req 6: "must work with open source browsers"

    CS: make sure that open source browser can use this method to

    ... if we focus on unencrypted content, try to keep content

    open source browser to implement ABR with a proprietary

    ... ...independently from how it has been encrypted

    CS: next requirement 7: "ABR media must be useable in HTML5"
    ... no specific comment
    ... Req 8: (linked to Req4), content must be identifiable

    MW: HLS/DASH, which profile, or whatever, would be handled by

    of XHR
    ... some interactions there, maybe with errors ?

    CS: We'll assume it's OK and somebody to speak if not

    MV: case where splicing ad into the media: ?

    MW: use another media element to render the ad

    MV: add this use case as a requirement: how to properly handle
    this (ad insertion impact on presentation timeline)

    CS: Please provide text on the wiki

    MV: OK

    MW: you would need some changes in the API to perform this use
