Hi all.

This announces the publication of MediaSync, a generic and open-source
JavaScript library for timed (synchronized) playback of HTML5 audio and video.
The MediaSync library works to time align media playback to the progression of
the timing object.


The timing object draft spec defines *timed playback mode* as a possible
extension to existing standards for HTMLMediaElements [1]. However, until
standardization and implementation is a reality, the Multi-device Timing CG
makes available a generic and open source JavaScript library for timed playback,
integrated with the timing object/shared motion. MediaSync is published [2] as
research output from MediaScape [3], an ongoing FP7 EU project.  As part of the
dissemination and standardization work of MediaScape, MediaSync is also made
available for the Multi-device Timing CG. The Web page linked above includes API
documentation, example usage and demonstrations. Source code is available at
[2] .

And, not to forget, integration with timing object/shared motion enables HTML5
video and audio to take part in globally synced multi-device playback!
