[whatwg] Feature Request for the-video-element to support audiochannel descriptions

Hello to everybody, unknowingly,

It would be nice to see audioTrack.channels added to the-video-element for media resources with multiple media tracks. [1]

It should return the number of channels in the audio track (1 = mono, 2 = stereo, 6 = surround, etc).

A use case can be: A user has an encoded video with multiple audio tracks. Track 1 and 2 are both English, but one is stereo, one is surround.

Kind regards,
Christian Horn
