Web Application Video Ecosystem - Web Media Application Developer Guidelines (CTA-5002)
People watch streaming video on many different devices – phones, tablets, computers, TVs, projection systems, stadium displays, and more. This created a nightmare for content creators and streaming media service providers. Not only do viewing devices often have different aspect ratios (ratio of width to height), but they might also have different software, too. The result is that streaming video providers must create and send many differently formatted streams of the same program to reach all the various combinations of playback hardware and software out there. The WAVE Project limits the scope of this problem by identifying a limited number of formats that streaming service providers should be able to use to reach most of their audience. CTA-5002 outlines best practices for creating apps that will be used to view streaming media content. It’s expected to be updated at least annually to keep pace with the evolving web platform. It’s a companion guide to CTA-5000-A (Web Media API Snapshot 2018).
