Working with Multimedia APIs in the Browser
The browser has come a long way in the last twenty-five years or so. The ability to click a word on a web page and be brought to a totally different page was so cutting-edge, that those blue, underlined words were called “hyperlinks.” We’re not quite as easily amused these days and that’s fine because the web has risen to the challenge. In this talk, we’ll explore some of the new media APIs in HTML5. We’ll take about getting media from from a user’s camera and microphone, building simple games in the browser, making music, and real-time communication using WebRTC.
