Just to try and help clarify requirements ... I suspect the current requirements you wrote could be meant mostly by just taking a copy of the data to and from the speaker/mic/camera/screen and just sending them via a HTTP post to some web service that recorded them. I suspect you want something different than that so we might need to poke at these requirements a bit to see what it is. Alternatively, if data can be copied from one stream to anther stream using the JS, does that provide everything you need or is it something more. 

(BTW... I am probably not in favor of supporting these requirements in the client as it is typically not a great place to do recording but that's a separate issues. Just trying to clarify what we talking about)

> In this use case, the web application user wishes to record a real-time communication at a remote recording device, such that transmitted and received audio, video or other real-time media are transmitted in real-time to the remote device. The remote device can perform archiving, retrieval, playback, etc., but can also perform real-time analytics on the media. A typical deployment might be in a contact centre. For a given medium, the two directions of transmission can be transmitted together (mixed) or separately. The web application also sends metadata that gives context to the stored media.
