Have you heard about navigator.getUserMedia()? That could the trick. More info: <a href="http://www.html5rocks.com/en/tutorials/getusermedia/intro/" rel="nofollow">http://www.html5rocks.com/en/tutorials/getusermedia/intro/</a>

They talk about it in the Mobile Web Development course in Udacity (lesson 10). <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j6mzYt5fJpg" rel="nofollow">https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j6mzYt5fJpg</a>
