Dear all,

There were a couple of items on the agenda of the recent W3C TAG meeting of interest to our group that I'd like to share:

1. Media Autoplay As a Permission [1, 2]

I quote the TAG resolution here:

> RESOLUTION: media autoplay should be under user control; that could mean for example having a setting "yes, autoplay is OK across the board" or it could mean origin-specific permissions prompts. "yes, netflix can autoplay videos". ---> therefore modeling autoplay as a permission is desirable because the diversity of effective policies will require that sites be able to introspect the policy without attempting to play media.

Please also read the follow-up discussion at WHATWG [3] and feel free to join the discussion there.

2. TV-Specific Web Subsetting [4, 5]

This has been an item on the TAG's agenda for a while, and one that I think should be discussed in the IG, as it's broader than just HbbTV. Current work in this area is happening in the Web Media API Community Group [6].

Your comments and feedback on both these issues are welcome.

Kind regards,

Chris (Co-chair, W3C Media & Entertainment Interest Group)
