> Thanks Keith - the issue is with the HTML5 that uses modern webrtc standards for video - either the javascript is excluding the type of embedded framework Livecode is no using on MacOS - or the framework doesn?t;t yet support those. Features - I?d like to check - but not sure what Livecode is using under the hood. Would be nice if it were in the dictionary entry.
