Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-248) captureVideo() on iOS doesnt seem to save to the device's photoalbum like captureImage() does
Date Fri, 10 Feb 2012 20:20:59 GMT


Shazron Abdullah commented on CB-248:

I have changed the type of this issue to "New Feature" since this is an extension to the W3C
Media Capture API (and possibly requires it to be a separate API), and we are trying to conform
to the W3C API.

The W3C Media Capture API defines a "lifetime" for a media capture:
"User agents should discard the captured files only after the top-level browsing context [HTML5]
related to the script is destroyed. In a special cases where the UA detects limited storage
space, files may be deleted earlier."

Although we really should remove for captureImage() saving to the photo album so we can be
consistent cross-platform - we probably will not be removing a feature that is already out
there. We'll try to figure out a suitable alternative or migration.
