An addstream event is fired on a RTCPeerConnection when a new MediaStream object has been added to it.

This event has been removed from the WebRTC specification in favor of the track event and the corresponding RTCPeerConnection.ontrack event handler property.

An event handler for this event can be added using the RTCPeerConnection.onaddstream property.
