Re: Any plan for zoom capacity in webRTC.

To 'zoom' the video element, not the camera, you could put the video
element in a div with overflow: hidden, then respond to tap/click events by
increasing the width of the video element and adjusting the video element's
relative position accordingly, depending where the event occurred. Double
tap/click could zoom out likewise.
