Firefox 16 Now Supports HTML5 getUserMedia

Firefox 16 now supports HTML5 getUserMedia. It enables access to webcam without any plugins.

There is an entry in about:config, set that to true. In case you need to add a new entry then:

  • open about:config
  • Right click any entry.
  • Select ‘New‘ >> ‘Boolean

Add the following entry and set it true:


Remember to define callback methods right within the getUserMedia() method as shown below:

function successCallback(stream) {
// Replace source of video element with stream from camera
if(navigator.getUserMedia==navigator.mozGetUserMedia) {
video.src = stream;
} else {
video.src = window.URL.createObjectURL(stream) || stream;

function errorCallback(error) {
console.error(‘An error occurred: [CODE ‘ + error.code + ‘]’);

It won’t works in-case you defined it elsewhere. No need to use CreateObjectURL to pass the stream the video element. Pass the stream directly. video.src=stream

Paul Rouget of Mozilla, created a video tutorial demonstrating HTML5 getUserMedia:


Introducing Mozilla Persona An Identity System For The Web

Mozilla Introduced Mozilla Persona An Identity System For The Web with three newly updated features:

A Better Way To Sign In:  Improved way of signing in to your websites. Instead of managing multiple usernames and passwords across your favorite sites and devices, you get more time to do the useful stuff.

You Own Your Data: Many sign-ins carry your profile data and some even share that info with other sites and social networks. Persona lets you get started with only your email address and you get the option to add profile data later on where you think it’s appropriate.

Ease for publishers: Enabling Browser ID, the underlying Persona technology, on your site only takes a few lines of code and helps build good relationships by providing users with a trusted sign-in option.
