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.

http://webtiming.github.io/mediasync/

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!
