<h1>getUserMedia API Example</h1>

navigator.getUserMedia = navigator.getUserMedia || navigator.webkitGetUserMedia || navigator.mozGetUserMedia;
var constraints = {audio: false, video: true};
var video = document.querySelector("video");
function successCallback(stream) {
// stream available to console so you could inspect it and see what this object looks like = stream;
if (window.URL) {
video.src = window.URL.createObjectURL(stream);
} else {
video.src = stream;
function errorCallback(error) {
console.log("navigator.getUserMedia error: ", error);
navigator.getUserMedia(constraints, successCallback, errorCallback);
(!) Please remember to run this example from a (local) web server and not by 'just' clicking on the html. Why? because the browser will block getUserMedia API by default if you won't serve it from a web server. Even in the case of a web server you need to 'allow' this permission in the top-right corner of this page.
