Code ’19 Feature session: It’s time to hit record: an introduction to the Media Recorder API – Jessica Edwards

As we countdown to Code ’19, our front end development conference, we’re highlighting great sessions you can expect.

If you like what you see, then why no get along? It’s in Melbourne on June 20 and 21, but always sells out, so don’t delay. And use the code ‘blog’ to get a free upgrade to a silver ticket when you register for a classic, giving you all the conference videos as a bonus!

an introduction to the Media Recorder API

If you haven’t attempted to get media out of web page before, you can be forgiven for thinking it would be a simple exercise. For a long time however, anything beyond a trivial static frame varies between an arduous exploration of an excessive amount of web APIs, to downright impossible without talking to a server.

Fortunately, the Media Recorder API helps to address this issue. Without any plugins, extensions, or any back-end code, we can generate a piece of original video content solely in the browser! …with some caveats. We’ll go through what you can do with Media Recorder and other related APIs, what you can’t, and what’s on the horizon.
