Re: [mediacapture-record] Does recording of remote a/v streams always imply re-encoding? (#139)

I spoke a bit more with some engineers and there is a difference between a re-encoded stream and a WebRTC dump of the stream. For example, key frames might be different, which could cause a difference in whether or not the resulting recorded could be seeked in or not when playing it back.

It might make sense to allow the application some control here, such as if we leave the mimeType unspecified we could allow not re-encoding, but if it is specified we always re-encode?
