W3C Video in the Web activity

The W3C has just released a set of proposed charters for a new W3C Video in the Web activity with a request for feedback.

The following working groups are proposed:

  1. Timed Text Working Group
  2. Media Fragments Working Group
  3. Media Annotations Working Group

Two further ones under investigation are:

  1. Codecs and containers
  2. Best practices for video and audio content

It is worth checking out the site and the three different working groups they are planning to create. Sure – the codec discussion is a big one. But it’s not as big as some of the other activities as to new functionality for video on the Web.
