Steps to reproduce

The MSE spec requires user agents to support overlapping audio segments in one of two ways:

  1. remove the overlapping samples, and insert silence in their place; or
  2. cross fade the overlapping samples.


Edge does not seem to do either and instead just removes the overlapping samples entirely, leaving a gap in the buffer (SourceBuffer). This does not seem consistent with the MSE spec.


Rationale: the first segment has a duration of 10.005333… seconds and the second segment begins at 9.952 seconds. The second segment should be spliced in yielding a single buffered range of 19.957333… seconds.

    • Still reproducible with Edge/16.16299.

      @Gurpreet, can you be more specific when you set status to "not reproducible"? Not reproducible with which version of Edge? When can developers expect to see this fix?

    • Please reopen. This issue is still reproducible in Edge 16 with the steps detailed in the original report.
