4 thoughts on “Your metadata is not my metadata

  1. MPEG7 covers temporal metadata, sounds like it fits the bill for what you are describing but it’s not a great web delivery format. It needs some transformation to simplify for HTML markup.

    Let me know if you need further details!

  2. TTML application of timed metadata (substitute your fave XML metadata encoding)

    <?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8' standalone='no'?> 
    <tt xml:lang='en' xmlns='http://www.w3.org/2006/10/ttaf1' xmlns:t="TaggedTriples">
       <body>
         <set begin="1s" dur="1s">
           <metadata>
             <t:triple>
               <t:predicate>P</t:predicate>
               <t:object>O</t:object>
               <t:subject>S</t:subject>
             </t:triple>
           </metadata>
         </set>
         <set begin="3s" dur="1s">
           <metadata>
             <t:triple>
               <t:predicate>P</t:predicate>
               <t:object>O</t:object>
               <t:subject>S</t:subject>
             </t:triple>
           </metadata>
         </set>
         <set begin="5s" dur="1s">
           <metadata>
             <t:triple>
               <t:predicate>P</t:predicate>
               <t:object>O</t:object>
               <t:subject>S</t:subject>
             </t:triple>
           </metadata>
         </set>
         <set begin="7s" dur="1s">
           <metadata>
             <t:triple>
               <t:predicate>P</t:predicate>
               <t:object>O</t:object>
               <t:subject>S</t:subject>
             </t:triple>
           </metadata>
         </set>
       </body>
     </tt>
    
  3. @sean And here’s a WebSRT version, while we’re at it:

    00:00:01.000 --> 00:00:02.000
    <t:triple>
      <t:predicate>P</t:predicate>
      <t:object>O</t:object>
      <t:subject>S</t:subject>
    </t:triple>
    
    00:00:03.000 --> 00:00:04.000
    <t:triple>
      <t:predicate>P</t:predicate>
      <t:object>O</t:object>
      <t:subject>S</t:subject>
    </t:triple>
    
    00:00:05.000 --> 00:00:06.000
    <t:triple>
      <t:predicate>P</t:predicate>
      <t:object>O</t:object>
      <t:subject>S</t:subject>
    </t:triple>
    
    00:00:07.000 --> 00:00:08.000
    <t:triple>
      <t:predicate>P</t:predicate>
      <t:object>O</t:object>
      <t:subject>S</t:subject>
    </t:triple>
    

    I’d like to see something like the following header added though:

    WebSRT
    language: en
    kind: metadata
