The creation of a URL is unnecessary indirection.  It's easier to avoid 
creating special URLs entirely, and instead assign the the Stream object 
directly to video.src.


navigator.getUserMedia("video", function(stream) {
   video.src = stream;

This is then reflected in the src content attribute as 
"about:streamurl", and is returned upon getting video.src.  This 
requires that the HTMLMediaElement src property definition needs to be 
changed from DOMString to any.
