A simple HTML5 library to stream a webcam video to a <canvas> object.

Uses WebRTC (getUserMedia), Canvas and HTML5 Video.

Check out a sample application, too: camvas_photobooth.

Example usage:

window.onload = function(){
  var ctx = document.getElementsByTagName('canvas')[0].getContext('2d')
  var draw = function(video, dt) {
    ctx.drawImage(video, 0, 0)
  var myCamvas = new camvas(ctx, draw)
