            Bug ID: 25805
           Summary: Consider adding getOtherTracks() method
           Product: WebRTC Working Group
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Windows NT
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Media Capture and Streams
          Assignee: public-media-capture@w3.org

As per Sec. 4.2.3 of the latest Editor's Draft (dated 07 May 2014), there are
two methods on the MediaStream for kind-specific retrieval of tracks -
getAudioTracks() and getVideoTracks.  However, since the specification still
allows for creation of MediaStreams from files, it is possible to have tracks
that are neither audio nor video.

Another option is to eliminate the possibility to create MediaStreams from any
sources other than local or remote capture devices.  If the group goes in that
direction, then there will be only two kinds of tracks - video and audio.
