Hi,

Looking at the Mozilla's bugzilla, it looks like the next version of
Firefox mobile will enable access to camera input, but using a different
approach of what we've been pushing so far:
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=451674

This apparently uses a device: URI scheme to plug camera input into e.g.
an image or a video tag:
<img src="moz-device:camera?type=image/png>
<video src="moz-device:camera?type=video/x-raw-yuv"></video>

I wonder if anyone from Mozilla would like to chime in on this
approach...
