Hi Kai,

This forum is still alive though the activity is low currently.
I've been too busy for a few months.

Thanks for sharing your demos.

I think  FileSystem API or Indexed DB are better and  more robust 
than Appcache for storing video files.
Besides, Appcache may be changed or deleted from the HTML5 spec.
Appcache is marked as *at risk* in the HTML5 spec.
http://www.w3.org/TR/html5/

Personally, I prefer Indexed DB than FileSystem API.
Indexed DB is implemented by most of major browsers.
But File API is not.
Moziila is saying they won't support FileSystem API.
https://hacks.mozilla.org/2012/07/why-no-filesystem-api-in-firefox/
Microsoft and Apple also may not support FileSystem API 

But I haven't tried Indexed DB for storing video files.
I'm not sure that Indexed DB works well in this case for now.
I'll try it when my current hard works are done.

Cheers,
Futomi
