Description

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/62.0.3178.0 Safari/537.36

Steps to reproduce:

Looked at what browsers implement TextTrack.inBandMetadataTrackDispatchType
https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/TextTrack


Actual results:

Found Firefox (and Edge and WebKit) implement this API, but Chrome does not.  I was not able to find any specification for this API.  https://w3c.github.io/webvtt/ doesn't have it, and I see no issues mentioning it, but maybe an old version did?


Expected results:

Firefox APIs should match specs.  Please consider removing the API to match Chrome, or (if it's actually valuable) getting the API added to some specification so that chromium can ship it as well.

Sorry, my bad - tool failure caused me to miss the definition in the HTML spec: https://html.spec.whatwg.org/multipage/media.html#dom-texttrack-inbandmetadatatrackdispatchtype

Filed chromium bug instead: https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=754093
