           Summary: Add HTMLMediaElement canPlayType method
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 528+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: WebCore Misc.
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: eric.carlson at apple.com


Add the canPlayType method, define in 4.8.10.3 as:

The canPlayType(type) method must return the string "no" if type is a type that
the user agent knows it cannot render; it must return "probably" if the user
agent is confident that the type represents a media resource that it can render
if used in with this audio or video element; and it must return "maybe"
otherwise. Implementors are encouraged to return "maybe" unless the type can be
confidently established as being supported or not. Generally, a user agent
should never return "probably" if the type doesn't have a codecs parameter.
