RE: EME test suite

I would like to suggest that we have an Editors’, Chair and W3C Team meeting on Tuesday in the 8am PDT meeting slot to discuss where we stand on MSE and EME testing.  Once the we get on the same page I would recommend that we open up the discussion to the entire HME WG.

I will send out an agenda either today or tomorrow.  Please provide any updates on this thread for now.

That's good.

Which DRM vendors will be a able to stand up test servers for the period whilst we prepare the implementation report ? (I don't think we can test the whole specification with ClearKey alone).

The tests I am working on will have a simple abstract interface to plug in different server protocols on the client side.

I also wonder whether it might be acceptable for the purpose of the implementation report to have some browser-specific polyfill code that patches up any small non-compliances ? We would still be testing the "true" EME API, just an implementation of it that consists of a browser + polyfill. This seems to me to meet the requirement for demonstrating specification correctness, at least. What do you think ?

FYI: I started work on the IDL tests. I will put them here<>, encrypted-media branch.

I am also going to look as porting our simple EME tests across to the web-platform-tests framework.
