“getUserMedia is an API that gives a web page access to a user’s camera and microphone via JavaScript. It’s supported in Opera Labs (latest Android build, latest desktop builds) and WebKit in Chrome Canary builds. Like many other APIs, it’s not part of the ‘real’ HTML5 spec. It started life as the HTML5  element, then got moved into the W3C as part of the webRTC specifications. But let’s not taxonomise when we could be having fun.”
