I hope this idea has already been considered and is in development. But if it isn't, please add to the list. Would love the ability to cast a video to device from within the Edge browser. This ability has been around with other operating systems for years.3 votes
This is available in Edge for PCs – hit menu (…) then “Cast media to device”
Ogg Vorbis and Opus are free and open-source audio codecs with great quality. They are developed by Xiph.Org Foundation and IETF.
Opus codec provides the best quality (latest listening tests: http://listening-test.coresv.net/results.htm for 96 kbps and http://listening-tests.hydrogenaud.io/igorc/results.html for 64 kbps) and very low latency (http://opus-codec.com/comparison/ ). More information: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opus_%28audio_format%29 . Support status: http://caniuse.com/#search=opus .
Ogg Vorbis also provides good quality. It is an old audio format and you can find many of Ogg Vorbis files in the web. Ogg Vorbis is very popular in the Linux world.

OGG, Theora and Vorbis are now supported in the Fall Creators Update by installing the Web Media Extension from the Microsoft Store: https://www.microsoft.com/store/apps/9n5tdp8vcmhs
Long-term, we expect to expand distribution of the Web Media Extension package to all Windows 10 devices so that these formats become a trusted and reliable part of the web platform available to developers.
I understand that audio/wav PCM is not a suitable format for network delivery, but it is a simple format to work with and it is well suitable for playing around on an internal network.
We recently used it to perform an encoding blind-test internally (the test sadly Only worked in the other browsers because we choose audio/wav because it is lossless).12 votes
WAV support was included in the initial release of Microsoft Edge
Since our company made the move to Windows 8 tablets, our proprietary tablet app is unable to use the camera and microphone for our technicians to use, since IE Metro has outlawed any hardware access, and plugins for that matter.238 votes
