need an message to console or in the page when src not found for video tag
It would be really cool if the error console could tell me that it didn't find the source I tried to set because the file couldn't be found. Even better if it could show a "broken video" placeholder. I was trying to do <video id="v" src="foo.ogg" controls></video> <span onclick="document.getElementById('v').setAttribute('src','bar.ogg')">replace foo.ogg with bar.ogg</span> and spent a lot of time wandering in the dark thinking something was wrong but it was only my boneheadedness in getting the path to bar.ogg wrong. If there had been a console message or a broken video placeholder on failure to load the new src, it'd have saved me and the people I pestered for help quite a bit of time. thanks.
This was fixed a long time ago by the broken video UI in the controls.
