The docs on the wiki mentions a vp8 stream option, but I can't figure out how to consume it. I tried putting it as a source on a video tag but there's an extreme amount of lag which makes it unusable. I assume I'm doing something wrong, but I can't know since it's not really documented. Even a simple example would be great.

In general please provide a concrete example that you've tried. Ref.

I edited my question with an example, but it's as I already said in it. I tried putting it directly in a video tag and it didn't work.
