The questions recently raised about DVD pipelines would be a good one.
How to pass around data that isn't quite a media stream and isn't
meta-data but needs to be in sync with the real media streams. Probably
fits right in the interactivity discussion.
We still need a regression/test suite. Might want to discuss how to
appropriately test the entire API as well as test all the plugins. Part
of this could be a plugin-killer that loads a plugin and test stream and
tests all the features of a plugin including corner cases. And make
sure it returns appropraite error values for bad input or api calls (ie,
range limit errors). Maybe also some framework to inject errors in the
stream or core API return values to make sure plugins can recover or at
least not crash.
How about a security audit? I doubt we can test all the libraries we
use but it would be good to at least be internally safe from malicious
And Uraeus and maYam should collaborate on a SVG based theme. ;)
