I also would love to see camera:// and <input type="camera"> in HTML5. Thirding Daniel Glazman and Asa Dotzler.

With the proliferation of user generated content from YouTube to video comments, making video easier to use in a more standardized way is better for the web. Considering the growth of online video, in particular user generated video, it seems to be an obvious fit.

    Doesn’t <input type=file accept=video/*> cover the use-case?

    I agree with the other comment. would be much nicer. It will work on existing picture/video upload sites, and it will make it possible for the user to choose between taking a new picture/video or using an old one.

    It seems like your blog software has a bug. It swallowed parts of my previous comment. It is supposed to say input type file (with added chars) after the first dot.

    @zcorpan: It doesn’t really. That would work for uploading a video file. This is essentially a stream.
