We have everything we need to read DVD-video discs in a browser, so why don’t we start?
But this comes with technical challenges such as browsers being bad at manipulating huge files or not supporting the codecs used in DVD (MPEG-2, AC-3…). That’s why this port comes with a server in Node.js to circumvent these limitations.
The resulting project is a mix of websockets, video elements, media source extensions and a lot of open source love.
Get ready for a mind blowing demo!
