getUserMedia/Stream API

Last updated on : 2022-04-10

Note:
getUserMedia/Stream API shows a browser compatibility score of 88. This is a collective score out of 100 to represent browser support of a web technology. The higher this score is, the greater is the browser compatibility. The browser compatibility score is not a 100% reflection for every browser and the web technology support. However, it does give you an estimate on how much you should rely on a particular web technology in terms of browser compatibility.

Overview

We can use this method to access the video from an external device, like a webcam. You'll need to use a <source> element for browsers that don't support this feature.
