Video Conferencing with the HTML5 Device Element http://bit.ly/aovjtq
Just another indicator of what is being developed with HTML5 as it unfolds:
The element will be used to allow the user to give permission to a page to use a device, such as a video camera. A type attribute can be used for the page to give more specificity on what kind of device they want access to. Right now this could be ‘media’ for access to an audio or visual device; ‘fs’ to access the file system, such as a USB connected media player; or ‘rs232’ or ‘usb’ to access devices connected in this manner.
