I agree. It would be a productive project, and probably not too hard.
On Benoit's ideas about how to do what he's thinking about, I wonder if
other people think that it would be wise to have a track with multiple
location elements, each pointing to a different streaming service. That
would function similarly to the sources idea:
Then, Benoit brought up the issue of having different metadata for each
track.location or track.sources[i], like this:
"meta" : [
In the specs, the keys are urls like http://example.com/rel/1/. Should this
point to an URL that exists or can I use what I want ?
The URL does not have to exist. This is legal, even though there is not
actually any domain at example.org:
Over the years I have softened up quite a lot towards namespaces, and don't
think something like this would be a bad thing:
