Hi group,

The minutes of the Audio WG teleconference for 26th September 2012 are now online:


We met for an hour yesterday to discuss the following topics:

 1. TPAC update

We cancelled our face-to-face meeting at TPAC, and discussed whether and where/when we could have our next one. There was significant interest for a meeting in North America (East or West Coast, TBD) around January 2013. I will be following up with a few of you on possible hosts, and we will have a survey with a few options in the next few weeks.

 2. Quick update on recent changes to the specs / early implementations

The editors gave an update on recent changes to the spec. On the MIDI front, ChrisW and Jussi explained the current focus on making the messages less verbose. ChrisR reported completing the name changes for start/stop and mentioned recent or upcoming implementation of a few features which had been in the spec for a while (media source node for live audio input, media source for RTC peers).

 3. Chartering

Doug mentioned that we were about to be officially rechartered. And indeed, we now are. Many thanks to Doug and everyone involved in the process.

 4. Graph introspection / determine connection state of an AudioNode 

We talked a little bit about the issue of whether the API should offer a way to determine all the connection states for a given audio node: https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=18488

It was felt that this was interesting, but an additional level of complexity which may not be a good idea to add at the moment. The group resolved to keep this feature for later.

 5. DAP / HTML Media Capture

Doug raised concerns about the HTML Media Capture spec, and asked the group for opinions. The general consensus, recorded in a dual resolution was that The HTML Media Capture specification should define its relationship with GetUserMedia(), and that it should follow the same naming/approach to access to video/microphone as getUserMedia().

Next meeting will be on the 12th of October, same time.
