[Bug 14260] <track> "text tracks ready" and HTMLMediaElement.readyState


--- Comment #3 from Simon Pieters <simonp@opera.com> 2011-09-23 14:21:17 UTC ---
I think text tracks shouldn't block HAVE_METADATA. If the text tracks are slow
to load, this would mean the video is stuck at HAVE_NOTHING even if the first
frame is available. The user might not even want to see the beginning of the
video but wishes to seek to the middle of the video ASAP. If the video is stuck
at HAVE_NOTHING while the text tracks are loading, the user can't start the

Instead I suggest that we don't transition to HAVE_ENOUGH_DATA until the
</video> end tag has been parsed and all text tracks are ready. This prevents
autoplay to start before the tracks are ready. If an author wants to know when
a track is loaded, he can listen for 'load' on the track itself.
