We have assembled the following list of items that have been proposed, 
or discussed, but not yet resolved or decided.

Please, contribute to discussing these things. We need to move forward!

Stefan for the chairs

Use events instead of callbacks for getUserMedia
     Feedback from Rich, Travis, Harald, Adam
     * Need a concrete proposal (action Anant)

Simple image capture API
     Inputs from many (Harald, Randell, ...)
     * No clear consensus

iFrame behavior
     Feedback ranging from “seems OK” to “don’t like”.
     * No clear consensus

Direct assignment of MediaStream to Video
     One way of getting around the encapsulation-breaker that is 
     Meanwhile, there is a lot of discussion on the behavior of 
createObjectURL on the WebApps list
     * Not worked out yet

When are the resources (cameras, mics) “taken”?
     If the user gives the application the right to use resources (as a 
result of a getUserMedia call), what does that mean?
     It could mean that those resources are actually reserved, and 
blocked for other applications (perhaps in other tabs of the same browser)
     It could mean that the application is allowed to use those 
resources, but the actual use is deferred until the MediaStream is 
actually used (consumed by an audio or video element, or a PeerConnection)
     * Not worked out yet
