can I use high speed dubbing? :)

Yes, if you mean "set .playbackRate to play back the blob content at a
different rate".

Nothing prevents supporting Blob-to-MediaStream playback via media elements
*and* some other more convenient and possibly more performant API. Rather
than introducing a new MediaStream constructor, I think a method on Blob
would make more sense, say Blob.createMediaStream(). That could be defined
to behave as "create a new video element; set source to blob; play();
return captureStreamUntilEnded();"

“You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’
But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,
that you may be children of your Father in heaven. ... If you love those
who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors
doing that? And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more
than others?" [Matthew 5:43-47]
