We should update the reference for GETUSERMEDIA used in HTML Media Capture.

It should be changed from an old editors draft

D. Burnett, A. Narayanan. getusermedia: Getting access to local devices that can generate multimedia streams<http://dev.w3.org/2011/webrtc/editor/getusermedia.html> 22 December 2011. W3C Editors draft (Work in progress.) URL: http://dev.w3.org/2011/webrtc/editor/getusermedia.html

Attached are proposed changes to the HTML Media Capture editors draft to clarify the abstract, introduction and input element use.

If accepted this proposal should address the following Last Call Comments:

LC-2637 - partly address Doug and Olivier's concerns for clarity as expressed at the F2F

LC-2640 - clarify that capture attribute can be added as markup, not needing Javascript for this.

Proposed updated text and redline are attached as PDF, plain text below.

Frederick - thanks for the revised text, it looks great. I've updated the Editor's Draft and incorporated all of your text with the following minor changes:


Use of this HTML attribute as extended in this specification enables integrated capture and upload of audio, video and still images.


The text above was merged with the note about @accept as follows:



Use of the capture attribute as defined in this specification enables integrated capture and upload of audio, video and still images, and complements the following behavior defined in the File Upload state [HTML5]: User agents may use the value of [the accept] attribute to display a more appropriate user interface than a generic file picker. For instance, given the value image/*, a user agent could offer the user the option of using a local camera or selecting a photograph from their photo collection; given the value audio/*, a user agent could offer the user the option of recording a clip using a headset microphone.


All - let us know if there are any concerns with these changes.
