@RubenVerborgh Sure, but as discussed off-Twitter w/ @rtroncy before, there is (close to) no server-side fragment creation. All client-side…

via Echofon in reply to RubenVerborgh

@sympapadopoulos It is. Check bit.ly/V6YTPE bit.ly/RNDh6O. It’s just not as exact as having non-streaming direct access.

via Echofon in reply to sympapadopoulos

@sympapadopoulos In HTML5 video, you don’t have access to low-level codec-specific things like keyframes. There’s no notion at all about it.

via Echofon in reply to sympapadopoulos

@sympapadopoulos Wait, are you talking about <video>? Because I am. I have not worked w/ videos in Java, only a bit w/ FFmpeg.

via Echofon in reply to sympapadopoulos

@sympapadopoulos There is no notion of frames, though, just time (w/o exactness guarantees). For events, check bit.ly/13TTFuH.

@sympapadopoulos Supposing this is for <video>. Then keyframes no, fragments yes. Just seek to the position and wait for the “seeked” event.
