@mounirlamouri @avayvod Have you had a chance to check the Safari behavior?

Re: https://github.com/w3c/remote-playback/issues/46#issuecomment-230722760 I don't think the _local playback state_ completely covers the original question raised by this issue.

As _media element state_ is currently defined in the spec it covers HTMLMediaElement properties but does not address the rendered output of the element, so it leaves it up to the implementer to implement remoting or mirroring.  I think a note as suggested by @avayvod would address this.

Second, _media playback state_ doesn't cover HTMLMediaElement ancestor properties relating to layout, style, etc. so there's no requirement to synchronize them to the remote playback.  I'm not sure freezing layout is the best plan, since the controlling page might want to minimize, hide, or otherwise restyle the local video element during remote playback.  Obviously the site would need to restore previous style if remoting is ended to transition back to good local playback experience.  Does Safari allow restyling of remoted media elements?
