In accordance with the W3C process's requirement to record the group's decision to request advancement [1], this is a Call for Consensus (CfC) to request transition to Proposed Recommendation for the following Media Source Extensions (MSE) document:


For your reference there is list of recent commits to the MSE specification:


There were 60 V1, V1Editorial and V1NonBlocking issues processed since the MSE issues were triaged in March 2016 [2] for the Candidate Recommendation specifications [3-5]:

34 V1 issues: https://github.com/w3c/media-source/milestone/2?closed=1

25 V1Editorial issues: https://github.com/w3c/media-source/milestone/5?closed=1

1 V1NonBlocking issues: https://github.com/w3c/media-source/milestone/4?closed=1

A list of all issues against MSE is available at:


and a list of issues NOT dealt with in this cycle and assigned to the VNext milestone is available at:


ISSUE-74 which is tagged as V1Editorial is still outstanding and the MSE Registry will be published as a WG Note before we present the Proposed Recommendation to the W3C Director.


Test results for this specification can be found at [6-8].  An updated analysis of the test results is available at [9].  Note that we plan to continue updating the MSE test results until we present the draft Proposed Recommendation to the W3C Director.

Silence will be taken to mean there is no objection, but positive responses are encouraged. If there are no objections by Friday 16 September, this resolution will carry.

Considerations to note:

- A request to advance indicates that the Working Group believes the specification is stable and appropriate for advancement to Recommendation status.
