I'd like to ask if you've considered how this proposal effects MPEG-DASH
players using Media Source Extensions?

I've been using DASH players and they generally all break with today's
behavior on Chrome/Firefox is you're using a HTTPS page with a HTTP CDN for
the video content. This is because they mostly fetch content via XHR for
processing in their media source extension.

It's not very desirable to push all video over SSL (as it breaks in network
caching commonly deployed by Telco's/ISP's) - is it possible to consider a
scheme to allow a media source extension to tech video?
