I've checked your code and apparently you have the following extra IDL
attributes for video:

readonly attribute unsigned long mozDroppedFrames;
readonly attribute float mozPlaybackRate;
readonly attribute float mozDownloadRate;
readonly attribute unsigned mozFrameCount;

These are very useful indeed and I would like to see them added to the spec
- at least then an implementation of HTTP adaptive streaming in JavaScript
can be done and other functionalities such as making analysis graphs in
JavaScript about video performance are possible.
