A heavyweight panel that included Google, Microsoft Open Technologies, and Digital Primates guided Streaming Media West attendees through the creation of an open source DASH-AVC/264 player. Will Law, chief architect for Akamai, moderated and kicked off the discussion.
"We're trying to cook up something delicious here, and we have three ingredients to do it. We've got MPEG-DASH, we've got MSE/EME, and we've got dash.js," Law began. "You may not know what these are. I'm going to describe very briefly what our core ingredients are, and then we'll see how they're mixed by our panelists."
