node package manager



npm install mediastream

use HTML5 WebRTC the node way -- with streams

var media = mediastream({video: true})

media is a readable stream and speaks stream events: data, error and end. that means you can pipe media output to anything that accepts streams, such as an XHR. in this case the data events will be DataURI representations of the user's webcam frame captures


browsers only let you get webcam video right now (even though you can include audio: true in the options there is no way to capture the audio)

to generate demo-bundle.js using browserify:
