Bugzilla – Bug 18929
MediaStream as source for media elements
Last modified: 2013-06-06 05:27:35 UTC
The Media Capture TF is defining a concept called MediaStreams () to handle live media from cameras and microphones (amongst other things).
There has been discussions on how to use MediaStream's as sources for media (audio, video) elements.
Currently, it seems that two ways will be supported:
* use the src attribute of the media element by createObjectURL for MediaStream
* a new objSource attribute on the media element that allows direct assignment of a MediaStream as source
The question that arises is where to specify objSource (and its interaction with other things in the media element). One option is as en extension to the media element in , and the other would be in the HTML5 spec.
Silvia Pfieffer, in an off-line discussion, indicated that filing a bug would be the best way to get this discussed, so here it is!

Moving this to HTML.next as we work to lock down HTML5.0 for CR.
Mass move to "HTML WG"
Sorry about the long delay in discussing this. I believe the questions has been answered towards using the @src attribute both in Firefox and Chrome implementations. Do we require any further discussion of this here or can we just leave it to the Media Capture TF to continue resolving this?
