Remove unsupported -webkit pseudo IDs from the media player, replace with -internal.
These pseudo IDs interact with elements that are strongly managed by custom C++ code. There is currently no guarantee that their behavior will not change.
As part of our new media playback UI, we would like to remove access to these pseudo IDs, to prevent use of this unsupported features.
The pseudo IDs aren’t currently officially supported, though they have been present since 2013.
Alternative implementation suggestion for web developers
HTMLMediaElement provides better, and supported, methods for providing customized playback UI.
Usage information from UseCounter
We have not instrumented this, because it is currently unsupported.
OWP launch tracking bug

Entry on the feature dashboard
N/A - feature is currently unsupported.
Requesting approval to remove too?Yes.
that's a neat trick. thanks for providing this information!while this discussion is ongoing, i'll see how badly our tests break if we make this change. there are a fair number of them that contain "-webkit".
LGTM to try to remove/replace with -internal-. Be prepared to revert.:DG<
