In "MeeGo Smart TV WG Meeting Minutes for 9/20/2011" I noticed:
> o Dilip Kenchammana: Qt with HTML5 layer Dilip has provided a white paper via e-mail. Discussion postponed to next meeting.
Is it possible to get a copy of this whitepaper? I have serious
concerns all-around over the approach being taken, and am curious how
a number of issues are being resolved. Especially w/r/t/ security, and
also because silly breakage needs to be done to very hairy browser
code in order to "poke holes" for video acceleration and/or
DRM-protection. And once that breakage has been perpetrated, a
tidal-wave of bugreports will ensue because the HTML5 standard permits
"canvas" like operations on top of the video; also dynamically
altering the video frame. An extreme example:
Especially troubling for the "Tizen" approach, are statements like:
> A: Doninique, not that he's seen. Designed for closed system.
> Access to scripts and code inside the box is limited by physical security.
