I would like to bring some strange behavior of current web browsers to 
your attention. We have checked the HTML video (mp4 containers) 
abilities of IE, Safari, Chrome and Firefox and noted some variations 
between the specification and implementations. Our attention was focused 
on the seeking abilities and event mechanisms. One example is a missing 
pause-event in IE after the video playback ends, but there is a lot 

We tried to create a powerful HTML video player and we had to realize 
that our main job was to create workarounds.

Thanks and cheers,
