On an html page, it uses this code:

CODE
accept="video/*"


in this context:

CODE
<input type="file" name="fileToUpload" id="fileToUpload" accept="video/*" capture="user" onchange="submitForm();">


and when you view the page via mobile, and tap the page, your video camera screen appears. I'm looking to see if it's possible to add scrolling text across the page/video-camera-screen ? like some type of overlay? I would image it may be possible on an html page that displays a web cam, with sometyhing like this:

CODE
<video autoplay="true" id="videoElement"></video>


I look forward to any comments/suggestions/guidance.

What do you mean when you say "your video camera screen appears"? Do you somehow view the video detached from the HTML page?

On a normal HTML page viewed on a computer you can position text on top of a video, the same way you would position it on top of an image or anything else. But I'm not sure what you are up to here and I'm not sure about how mobile browsers deals with things either.

I have created a link to the page that I'm asking about. Apparently it expires in 6 days. I've never used this temporary file hosting site/service before (tiiny.site), but it looks like it works currently. The html page I'm asking about is at : https://mobileview.tiiny.site/
I look forward to any additional comments/suggestions/guidance.

Thanks for your reply.
Did you view the link via your mobile device? (and then tap the page?)

OK. I did that and was asked to allow FF to record video.

So, yes, when you allow the recording, I'm looking to see if it's possible to add scrolling text across that page/video-camera-recording-screen ? like some type of overlay?

Have you tried to position the marquee as I said yesterday? I don't know what the video-camera-recording-screen is, but is it like an ordinary video player it should work.

It is not like an ordinary video player.
Any other assistance is welcomed

Since there is no way to view source on mobile and it looks like this thing only works on that platform, I have no idea what it is unless you show me.

Nevertheless, you, who I assume have access to the source, could try to position the marquee on top of the player or whatever it is.
