Has any thought been given to exposing such metrics as framerate, how many
frames are dropped, rebuffering, etc from the <video> tag? My understanding
is that in the Flash player, many of these types of statistics are readily
available. This is interesting for things not just like benchmarking, but
for a site to determine if it is not working well for clients and should
instead e.g. switch down to a lower bitrate video.
