        Basically an API to make a flow-graph with various basic DSP bricks which can be plugged in to system audio sources/sinks, apparently with obviously redundant parts for 3D audio. I wonder how will they manage latency having JS GC and unsure system interface, though.

        In the meantime, there is still no standard way to fetch a given frame from a video.
