Hi All,
Seeking advice on the attached issue posted in GH.

BlobEvent was defined as a convenience wrapper for an associated event handler, but what was being returned was nothing but a Blob (see ImageCapture spec http://www.w3.org/TR/image-capture/#blobevent).  Now ImageCapture is a fully promise-based API.  I don’t think there is a need for defining custom events in the ImageCapture spec anymore.  Am I correct in my understanding?

I also don’t think the same reasoning holds for Recording though, and the event wrapper for Blob is still required.  Maybe recording should also become a Promise-based API, but that is a different debate.

Also, specific request to all – please file ImageCapture issues against ImageCapture’s GH repo (https://github.com/w3c/mediacapture-image).  It helps in tracking.

Subject: [mediacapture-record] BlobEvent is defined in both MediaStream Recorder and MediaStream ImageCapture, consider factoring them out (#16)

In [1] and [2], respectively.
