WebRTC on Chrome Canary and a look on Media Capture

I have been for a while exploring around the area of capturing using HTML5 and the results were interesting for me.

 WebRTC specification is to allow web browsers to stream media through set of APIs. It is still under development, fortunately we can take a look on it on chrome canary (chrome for developers)

Visit this link to test media streaming on chrome, especially try this one for Paul Neave.

Another interesting specification for me was Media Capture which focused on integration of media capture in HTML forms based on an extension to the FileAPI.

Imagine if you want to capture an image or video from your webcam, you need only to write

<input type="file" accept="image/*" capture="camera" id="capture"/>

and I wish to capture from a scanner in the same way too, so that we don't need to write complex code to capture and care about browser compatibility or jvm memory.

Of course all of this is not yet released and it will be added values to us as web and content experts.
