RE: Multiple capture devices?

Yes, indeed. This is the first draft so there are more to come. I am not sure if it should go through a native application. To allow for advanced features, the API might need to access the device directly. There is a proposal by Ian Hickson as:

So, my thinking is working with Ian on a API that would complement his <device> API.

Within the current proposal it would be up to the native application that is used to support all the available capture devices. The current proposal is only a fist draft and I think there are more features to come.

The present api exposes devices via navigator.device.capture{Audio,Video,Image}, however a
computer may have multiple capture devices, and this is not accounted for.  A user agent
might provide a sensible default, however that is still insufficient for cases where 
multiple capture devices need to be used at once.
