Timed Metadata

Timed metadata in content can be used by clients as cuepoints, for information display, to invoke time-aligned actions and so on. This information can be made available in HLS as ID3 tags. THEOplayer will automatically extract this information from the media stream and expose it in the JavaScript API. Because the data can be embedded within the stream, the application playing the video doesn't need to load data from two separate sources and doesn't need to do anything to keep the two data streams in sync.
