OverconstrainedError

Secure context

This feature is available only in secure contexts (HTTPS), in some or all supporting browsers.

Experimental

This is an experimental technology
Check the Browser compatibility table carefully before using this in production.

The OverconstrainedError interface of the Media Capture and Streams API indicates that the set of desired capabilities for the current MediaStreamTrack cannot currently be met. When this event is thrown on a MediaStreamTrack, it is muted until either the current constraints can be established or until satisfiable constraints are applied.
