Hi all,

Congratulations on another successful FOMS and next to such a huge
DEMUXED! It was big enough to have attracted Microsoft and I got to
know Andy Beach that way!

So I'm very happy to be able to announce that we've just had some
Microsoft video engineers join this mailing list - welcome!

For those that weren't able to attend FOMS, the session notes are all
linked into the Schedule:
http://www.foms-workshop.org/foms2017/pmwiki.php/Site/Schedule .
Feel free to log in and improve the formatting or add your own notes to clarify.
Ask for the PW on the FOMS video slack channel: https://video-dev.slack.com .

Finally, feel free to use this mailing list for discussions about some
of the new topics that came up this year.

For example, I know there was lots of discussion about a new QoE
Metrics proposal
prepared by Steve.

Then there was also discussion about extending the TextTrack API for
live captioning https://github.com/w3c/webvtt/issues/319 .

And one about the Media Capabilities CG spec:

At FOMS this year it was also great to have the open source media
developers from VLC, libav, Matroska, gstreamer and open codecs there
- I think we found we're all struggling with similar challenges.

Plenty more work to do to make video more usable on the Web and
elsewhere! Keep making media better!

running FOMS for 11 years now!
