  "One of the recurring themes of our work over the past few years has 
been synchronising web-based media with audio/video.

  "In this first of two technical blog posts on our recent work on P2P 
Next, we explain why and how we implemented the HTML5 media element 
attribute startOffsetTime in Firefox to enable accurate synchronisation of 
out-of-band timestamped metadata with media streamed live to a browser 
over the internet. "

Live streams, sub-titles, why NTP can't be used etc. etc.  If you are 
interested, please see:

Cheers,
