Editor's Note

Publishing and interacting with video on the Web in a seamless manner with commonly available browsers is not possible with today's Web standards. This article outlines several World Wide Web Consortium initiatives that aim to change that including work on an ontology to support media annotation, addressing of media fragments for improved access to content, and timed text to enable online captioning.
