"I don't think mediacapture-main should specify generic capture of audio output from a browser or document without the context of a compelling user problem that it best solves.

Especially not to work around another web API failing to provide adequate access┬╣ to audio it generates, to solve a use case that seems reasonable in that spec's domain.

Instead, I'd ask that API to solve it without workarounds. Feel free to refer to https://github.com/mozilla/standards-positions/issues/170#issuecomment-509873541.

The audio capture support in `getDisplayMedia` is not a good fit, as it's A) aimed at the screen-sharing use-case B) optional, and C) solely complementary to video."

[BA] Closing this issue.
