  3. Media Capabilities API

    The Media Capabilities API allows developers to determine decoding and encoding abilities of the device, exposing information such as whether media is supported and whether playback should be smooth and power efficient, with real time feedback about playback to better enable adaptive streaming, and access to display property information.

    * Spec: https://wicg.github.io/media-capabilities/

    * Explainer: https://github.com/WICG/media-capabilities/blob/master/explainer.md

    * MDN: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/Media_Capabilities_API

    Chrome, Safari, and Firefox all have Media Capabilities support.

  4. SDP Unified Plan

    Per spec, Firefox only supports unified plan and Chrome has now aggressively started moving towards it. Chrome has started supporting both, will move to unified plan by default soon and expects to completely drop support for Plan B by 2019.

    https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=465349

    Testing: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!searchin/discuss-webrtc/unified-plan$20plan-b%7Csort:date/discuss-webrtc/x8lcqHRlWmA/2ycvCHE4AwAJ

    "End of April 2018: “Unified Plan” and the new APIs stabilizes. We encourage everyone to switch to UnifiedPlan semantics and the new APIs.

    July 2018: Default SdpSemantics changes to UnifiedPlan. APIs listed under “Removed APIs” (except CreateSender) are removed at the same time.

  5. Microsoft Edge does not support page linking in internal PDF viewer

    Microsoft Edge does not support page linking in internal PDF viewer.

    In Chrome and Firefox you can jump straight to a page with a URL Hashtag suffix.

    For example, to jump straight to page 9 of this Microsoft PDF, adding "#page=9" will take you directly there in Chrome/Firefox.

    http://abouttmc.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/Dynamics-365-for-Financials-Capabilities-Guide-TMC-2016-11.pdf#page=9

    However Microsoft Edge does not support this feature.

    As a **developer**, I have pages coded to link to specific pages in PDFs that are up to 1,300 pages long... this is really frustrating for our end users.

  6. PDF viewer doesn't support JBIG2

    The built-in PDF viewer displays a noise pattern when attempting to view black/white images encoded as JBIG2. A lot of scanners produce files in this format for black/white scans, and all other PDF viewers seem to handle the format fine.

    Happy to provide a sample file if required.

  8. Support the HTML Media Capture API

    Full support for the HTML Media Capture specification (W3C Candidate Recommendation 2014). This would allow simple access to the native video camera using '<input type="file" name="video" accept="video/*" capture>' on Windows Phone.

    Specification: https://www.w3.org/TR/html-media-capture/
    (see "example 2" in spec)

    At the moment, the only way to do this is to create your own camera using the navigator.getUserMedia implementation, which is more complex and can differ per platform (UI and logic). The simpler input capture type already works on iOS, Android, and Blackberry providing a fully-functional native camera with requisite platform-specific look and feel.

    PS The HTML Media Capture API should not…

  10. Add support for the arithmetic coded JPEG, which saves 10% of file size losslessly

    As arithmetic coding patents for JPEG have now expired, it would be nice to support arithmetic coding in the JPEG. It will allow recompress existing JPEG files using arithmetic coding losslessly, as the result size of all JPEG files will be reduced by 10%.

  11. Add print margin setting of None to correctly print full page HTML5 and PDFs.

    I work for a large well known Office Products company. Edge is not capable of correctly printing sheets of labels, business cards, and other products because of the inability to print full sized sheets correctly. This is because the "Narrow" margin choice clips the border of the sheet. With a setting of "None" this would be corrected. Google Chrome notices that if a page is exactly the size of the sheet of paper it does not rescale. Scaling of 100% could be applied without any margins. Newer printers are capable of having very small margins and even some print to…

  14. WINDOWS 10 & WINDOWS 8.1: HTML input dialog does not contain camera app

    I'm posting this under IE development although it is in my view not a browser problem but a problem of Windows 10 & Windows 8.1.

    I have a web application which uses standard HTML input elements type="file" to open the filepicker dialog. On a mobile device this will open in Windows 8, IOS & Android a dialog which allows the user among others to select the camera app of the device. The user can than take a photo and after finishing post the photos location back to the browser, like he would select a "normal" file. In Windows 8.1 &…

  20. ORTC/WebRTC: add VP8 RTP PictureID

    Hello,
    it seems that ORTC/WebRTC stack does not add VP8 RTP PictureID [1] which is needed by Switching Mixer Media Servers [2] to properly perform its rewriting when RTP flow switchings take place in order to avoid some issues in clients (eg: Chrome) that depend on it.

    Could it be added as feature request?

    Thanks in advance!!
