Hello WebApps WG,

The Device APIs and Policy Working Group has published a new draft
called "HTML Media Capture" on which we think we'll need to coordinate
with your group:
http://www.w3.org/TR/2010/WD-html-media-capture-20100720/

That document defines a mechanism to bind an <input type=file> with a
set of well-defined accept attribute values, completed by a mime type
parameter ("capture"), with an extended file picker (that integrates
access to on-device microphones, cameras and camcorder) and resulting in
a MediaFile object that extends the File object from the FileAPI.

Feedback from the WebApps Working Group on our proposed extension to the
File interface (in the MediaFile interface) would be very much welcomed.

Let me know if any additional details would be useful,

Dom, on behalf of the Device APIs and Policy Working Group
