Media Capture

From W3C Wiki

The Media Capture API (a.k.a. navigator.mediaDevices.getUserMedia) is developed by a task force of the WebRTC Working Group (in which the [ Device and Sensors] Working Group used to participate). See the task force charter which replaced the original task force charter in February 2013).

This page serves as a coordination point for the work in this task force.
