Can we add ;source={microphone,camera,camcorder} to the MIME type parameters to follow the announced practice of Android and Firefox developers?

James Salsman, 14 Jun 2010, 02:49:23

AudioCodecAttributes contains "compFormat" -- http://dev.w3.org/2009/dap/system-info/#widl-AudioCodecAttributes-compFormat -- while the VideoCodecAttributes contains "compFormats". Those should both be plural as "attribute DOMString[] compFormats;" and they should be space-separated lists of MIME types, not free form.

The declaration above http://dev.w3.org/2009/dap/system-info/#widl-VideoCodecAttributes-hwAccel should also be pluralized with "attribute boolean[] hwAccel;" instead of omitting the "[]".

Under http://dev.w3.org/2009/dap/system-info/#idl-def-MicrophoneAttributes there needs to be a "name" attribute with values such as "microphone", "camcorder", "webcam", or "line-in" (suitable for use as a ;source=name type parameter in input elements for forms, e.g., input type=file accept="audio/x-speex;quality=7;bitrate=16000;source=webcam") and a "types" attribute (not to be confused with the existing "type" enumerated attribute) as a space-separated list of available MIME types such as "audio/x-speex audio/ogg" to go along with with the frequency ranges already in the draft.

Similarly, http://dev.w3.org/2009/dap/system-info/#idl-def-CameraAttributes needs to include attributes "name" and "types" such as "camera" and "image/png video/x-webm ..." respectively.

Finally, regarding the Media Capture API, per ISSUE-85 it is not appropriate for http://dev.w3.org/2009/dap/camera/#widl-FormatData-type to refer to "audio/x-wav" which is a union type with multiple serious drawbacks. Please replace it with "audio/x-speex or audio/ogg" which are unencumbered types of appropriate quality.
