Webcam Feed in PsychoJS

Not sure if this is the right place for it, but…

I’d like to put in a feature request for capturing a webcam feed during an online experiment. I see from the documentation that it’s on the list of things that could be done. It would be very helpful for our mood-related experiments for
a) tracking the participant’s focus
b) monitoring their facial affect.

Ideally, we’d be able to show the webcam feed to the participant (to help them position their face in the middle) and then save the feed as a movie file.

Yes, we are keen to get this in there, but the current focus is on maximising the robustness of the existing code (e.g. across browsers etc). I don’t think we’ll be adding the webcam in the next few months for sure.

Thanks for the reply, @jon - that’s good to know (and sounds like a good priority).
