Hi Rob

In HTML5 is it possible to synchronise audio or video with JavaScript actions? I have a page that drives a SVG animation from JavaScript that I want to synch with some music. But currently all I can do is start them at the same time and hope for the best.

The solution for this will be Timed Tracks, though that's not yet fully supported by browsers. Here's a more readable introduction. It allows you to have a file containing a list of timed cues which then fire events in the browser which you can use to trigger other actions on the page.

Thanks, that looks useful. It's a pity it isn't more widely supported yet.
