WebRTC shouldn't use built-in laptop cameras when the lid is closed
Reported by, Jun 26 2013 Back to list
When enumerating cameras, we can determine whether the camera is "suspended" on at least some OSes. We should mark cameras accordingly in the return from getSources, and perhaps also avoid picking suspended cameras in GetUserMedia.

I think this has been fixed, at least on Mac. Ted, can you verify with AVFoundation and QTKit on Mac?

Tommi, is there any signal for this on Windows?

Camera is still available when the lid is shut on my Lenovo X230 running Win 8.1 indicating lack of a signal. It even turns on when lid is closed (leave a 1 cm gap (possible on the aforementioned lenovo laptop) and shine some light between the keyboard and lid).

Components: -GetUserMedia Webcam
Not sure if this refers to WebRTC video capture code or what is used by the getUserMedia Web API in Chrome. If the latter, this should be a Chrome bug.

In the meantime, changing components since either way it's not about the gUM Web API.

Ping for triaging.

I'm *guessing* that the reason the bug is still open, is because it's in the webrtc tracker and not Chromium.

Niklas - do you know?
