We meanwhile know that Dan needs it for mobile onl, so a HTML5
standalone will not work for that.

To demonstrate this works on desktop with a HTML5 standalone try this
with Chrome, Firefox or Safari (use newest):

This is *very* basic, a first step into WebRTC.

Your webcam is started from the standalone, the mediaDevice dialog
and the video display is in the webpage. The display could be 'moved',
with loosing some frames/second, to the standalone.
