deviceId property is a
ConstrainDOMString describing the requested or mandatory constraints placed upon the value of the
deviceId constrainable property.
If needed, you can determine whether or not this constraint is supported by checking the value of
MediaTrackSupportedConstraints.deviceId as returned by a call to
MediaDevices.getSupportedConstraints(). However, typically this is unnecessary since browsers will ignore any constraints they're unfamiliar with.
Because RTP doesn't include this information, tracks associated with a WebRTC
RTCPeerConnection will never include this property.
An object based on
ConstrainDOMString specifying one or more acceptable, ideal, and/or exact (mandatory) device IDs which are acceptable as the source of media content.
Device IDs are unique for a given origin, and are guaranteed to be the same across browsing sessions on the same origin. However, the value of the
deviceId is determined by the source of the track's content, and there's no particular format mandated by the specification (although some kind of GUID is recommended). That means that a given track will only return one value for the
deviceId when you call
Because of this, there's no use for the device ID when calling
MediaStreamTrack.applyConstraints(), since there is only one possible value; however, you can record a
deviceId and use it to ensure that you get the same source for multiple calls to
Note: An exception to the rule that device IDs are the same across browsing sessions: private browsing mode will use a different ID, and will change it each browsing session.
