@ShijunS Constraints don't have defaults, by design. Unconstrained == UA chooses. Constraints are externalized (app) requirements letting UAs change device properties as they sees fit within the net envelope of all constraints put on it.

So basically, as a user of the API, if I care about a property, I should constrain it. If I don't care, I shouldn't have expectations of what value it'll have.

They could be. The [spec](https://w3c.github.io/mediacapture-main/getusermedia.html#the-model-sources-sinks-constraints-and-settings) says:

 *"Implementations may choose to make such source-to-sink optimizations as long as they only do so within the constraints established by the application, as the next example demonstrates.*

*It is fairly obvious that changes to a given source will impact sink consumers. However, in some situations changes to a given sink may also cause implementations to adjust a source's settings."*

I don't think anyone has implemented anything like that yet though, but maybe someday.
