Now that <video> tag is going to be widely support across browsers, why not going one step further and add webcam and cameras (on mobile devices) support to the src attribut of the video tag.
It would enable JavaScript interaction with live images and thus would add augmented reality capacity and could nicely interact with geolocation feature.
