The MediaTrackSupportedConstraints dictionary's cursor property indicates whether or not the cursor constraint is supported by the user agent and the device on which the content is being used.

The supported constraints list is obtained by calling navigator.mediaDevices.getSupportedConstraints().


isCursorSupported = supportedConstraints.cursor;


A Boolean value which is true if the cursor constraint is supported by the device and user agent.


This method sets up the constraints object specifying the options for the call to getDisplayMedia(). It adds the cursor constraint only if it is known to be supported by the browser. Capturing is then started by calling getDisplayMedia() and attaching the returned stream to the video element referenced by the variable videoElem.

async function captureWithCursor() {
  let supportedConstraints = navigator.mediaDevices.getSupportedConstraints();
  let displayMediaOptions = {
    video: {
      displaySurface: "browser"
    audio: false;

  if (supportedConstraints.cursor) { = "always";

  try {
    videoElem.srcObject = await navigator.mediaDevices.getDisplayMedia(displayMediaOptions);
  } catch(err) {
    /* handle the error */
