Worklets for Web Audio API
Some more links to follow progress on the spec. "asynchronous vs synchronous instantiation of AudioWorkerNodes" http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-audio/2014OctDec/0038.html Tracker (not necessarily worth reading): https://github.com/WebAudio/web-audio-api/issues/113
P1 for obvious reasons.
Priority: -- → P1
+DevAdvocacy because I was asked about "when is Firefox going to implement AudioWorkers" today at this conference. Also I have been wanting them for months already! :P
Since we're gated on the working group and prioritizing perf improvements, we need to move this to a P2.
Priority: P1 → P2

I'm implementing Worklet for Houdini. Would be nice to talk about how to use the same component for AudioWorklet as well.
Andrea, I need to have a look at the latest changes of the spec, but I can talk whenever, just ping me during the European day.

Naveed, here is the NI you asked for on the AudioWorklet bug.
Mass change P1->P2 to align with new Mozilla triage process

Just putting up a little .webidl WIP I have here for Karl.

This bug will become [parity-chrome] soon, since AudioWorklet is planned to be shipped with Chrome 66 (current beta): https://blog.chromium.org/2018/03/chrome-66-beta-css-typed-object-model.html
Waiting for the audioworklet. We tested on chrome.Audio Applications based on AudioWorklet has a better voice when page manipulate dom.
[clearing naveed's needinfo] Paul, what would you say is the priority of this work given that chrome is shipping soon?
Jeff, Chrome has already shipped this in M66. Shipping this is of the highest priority.
Paul: I also have a strong interest in AudioWorklet. Let me know if you think I can help you implementing this. That would be a good opportunity for me to get back contributing code to Firefox ;) I probably won't have enough spare time to implement the whole thing, but can probably help on some subtasks.
I could help test and verify on it. We have a cool meet application based on the feature. Currently, we just recommend customers use Chrome. But we also have lots of our customers love Firefox. Hope the feature could be shipped as soon as possible.

This sort of feedback really help us prioritize work like this.

Hi Jeff, We tried use ScriptProcessorNode to play audio data of a conference. Generally it works and the quality is good on Firefox, but there is some glitches/noise when you try to manipulate the page DOM or some busy tasks running on main thread. According to the spec ScriptProcessorNode onaudioprocess is called from main thread. So the voice will be impacted by the main thread, it is the shortcuts. Voice quality is the number one. We tested on chrome Audioworklet. It has a good improvement. If you have more interest on our meet application. I could demonstrate/share with you. Best Regards Fidel Tian
(In reply to Jeff Griffiths (:canuckistani) (:⚡︎) from comment #17) > Can you comment on why using a polyfill in Firefox does not work for you? > This sort of feedback really help us prioritize work like this. There isn't a satisficatory alternative for doing what AudioWorklet does. OTOH, if designed correctly, AudioWorklet could provide polyfill for any other AudioNodes that are not implemented by a particular browser. IOW AudioWorklet is what should have been the first AudioNode.
Thank you very much for the offers of help. Arnaud, would you like to start from bug 1458446? I'm planning to look at bug 1458448 next. If we work from each end, then perhaps we can meet in the middle.

Comment on attachment 8928224 [details] Bug 1062849: Define AudioWorkletNode and AudioWorkletProcessor. WIP Marking this patch as obsolete since AudioWorkletNode and AudioWorkletProcessor have been implemented as part of bug 1458446 and bug 1466182
Attachment #8928224 - Attachment is obsolete: true
Clearly ni on Naveed as he no longer works at Mozilla.
Appreciate the work you did. I would like to know when could the feature be released? Our product could not have audio option on FF as Chrome until the feature is available. we received many feedback from customers about FF. Regards Fidel Tian
Fidel, we're committed to ship this as soon as it's ready, but there are currently a bit too many moving pieces to provide a clear estimate. We'll announce an estimate when we think it's going to be realistic, thanks.
