@stefhak Thanks for the extra detail on the state of things when this 
came about. However we ended up in this situation, currently a simple 
`video.src = URL.createObjectURL(stream)` call does seem to work in 
Chrome, Edge and Firefox, or are there problems even there? (WebKit 
also has it in their IDL files, but the `Conditional=MEDIA_STREAM` is 
not enabled in Safari.)

If there is a lack of interoperability, then that could be an 
opportunity to simplify to the union of interoperable behavior, but 
unfortunately it doesn't in itself make it likely that sites will 
transition to using `srcObject`. Unless some implementation is serious
 about removal, I would expect even deprecation (in spec and 
implementations) to have quite limited effect. To quote myself:
