Steps to reproduce


The camera activity indicator remains active after stopping all tracks from a previously acquired stream. This only seems to happen when acquiring an audio and video stream.

In pseudo-code (full test case attached):

stream1 = getUserMedia({ audio: true, video: true });
stream1.eachTrack(t => t.stop()); // camera remains active

stream2 = getUserMedia({ video: true });
stream2.eachTrack(t => t.stop()); // camera does not remain active

Microsoft Edge 41.16299.15.0
Microsoft EdgeHTML 16.16299

I’ve also tested this in other browsers and the camera was released successfully.

  • Google Chrome Version 62.0.3202.94
  • Mozilla Firefox Quantum 57.0
  • Apple Safari Version 11.0.1 (12604.

Thanks for your time. Please let me know if you need more information or something is unclear.

Have a great week!
