Current List of Proposed Sessions

WebRTC - Tim Terriberry, Harald Alvestrand

WebRTC is a set of standards under development to bring real-time, peer-to-peer audio, video, and data communication to browsers without requiring plugins. This session will discuss outstanding issues such as interoperability issues, open spec issues, recording API, etc.

New Codecs - Tim Terriberry, Monty Montgomery

The new Opus audio codec has just been released, the Daala and VPnext? projects are working on developing a next-generation royalty-free video codec, and Xiph is currently designing transOgg, a next-generation container format. In this session, we'll attempt to get feedback from implementers and developers on what they want from these new formats and try to figure out how we can collaborate better.

Captioning & WebVTT - Silvia Pfeiffer

For the Web, WebVTT has been proposed as a new file format for time-aligned text-based cues. In comparison to other captioning formats, WebVTT has some missing features. This is a discussion about the problems with WebVTT and how we can fix them. We'll have demos of each browser's implementation of <track> and WebVTT for captions.

Video Editing - Gisles Boudet

Open source video editors have been appearing on the market now and then, but they tend to underperform in comparison to professional video editors or not appeal to professional users for other reasons. This is a discussion between open source video editor developers about the possibilities and features of open source video editing and what can be done to make a bigger impact. Some open source video editor are:

Collaboration between browser and media framework developers - Luca Barbato & Diego Elio Petten

Browsers make extensive use of open source media frameworks for their media support. This session provides an opportunity for browser developers to discuss what new needs they have from media frameworks and to discuss best practice approaches.

Video-asset/frame request APIs for post-production - Robin Gareus

Build upon - discuss and consolidate a protocol for exporting video-frames over HTTP suitable for asset-management and soundtrack creation (here, in particular Ardour3). I envisage the discussion itself as a short presentation, hallway-track discussion and hands on hacking. The session itself could be part of a larger workgroup concerned with interchange formats (EDL, MXF,...) and NLE interoperability.

WebVTT and text tracks beyond captions - Jeroen Wijering

The possibilities of WebVTT beyond captions/descriptions are especially relevant for in-video search, timed-thumbnails, interaction with the DOM (like Popcorn.js), etc. In this session we'll explore whether the limits of WebVTT and the HTML5? track API to find out if we need to extend them to allow for such use cases.
