@jan-ivar Personally I like that it solved the track-lifetime problem more than I'd be annoyed by having to solve the race.

Consider recording a stream from HTMLMediaElement.captureStream(). You could pipe an audio track through webaudio to be in full control of its lifetime. Then even when a video track from the media element ended before you managed to replace it with another (which if you managed to do it in time, would chop off a bit of the track's end), you can still do that after-the-fact. Or with a gUM track in case a user killed it through the browser's chrome.
