Minutes from W3C MEIG / WNIG joint meeting on Multicast Receiver API, 6 April 2021

Dear all,

The minutes and slides from today's Media & Entertainment IG and Web & Networks IG joint meeting are available [1, 2].

Thank you to Jake Holland for presenting the proposed Multicast Receiver API, and to Francois for scribing.

I'd like to draw attention to a number of open questions raised in Jake's presentation:

- How can the security and privacy concerns raised in the Chromium net-dev thread [3] be addressed?
- Are use case-specific APIs preferable to a generic multicast receiver API?
- If so, which use cases to target?
  - Live video streaming
  - Large file download
  - Real-time video conferencing (WebRTC)

We'll discuss among the MEIG and WNIG co-chairs about organising follow up discussions. Details to be announced.

At this stage, I recommend giving feedback via Jake's GitHub repository [4]..

Many thanks,

Chris (for the MEIG and WNIG co-chairs)
