Re: [mediacapture-main] MediaStream in HTMLMediaElement: Does it have a first frame? (#555)

whatwg/media seems to say that MediaStreams do indeed have a first frame, and there are other types of streams that can be real-time and still have a first frame.

This makes sense to me, and the logic checks out. Yet no major browser engine seems to load the first frame before playing, see https://github.com/whatwg/html/issues/4215#issuecomment-446558960.

Do people here know whether there's a rationale behind the current behavior, or if it's an oversight in the implementations?

Firefox's behavior predates my time at Mozilla, so I cannot comment on the reasoning there. I'd be curious to hear the other vendors' arguments.
