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.

<video autoplay>
 <source src="http://localhost:8888/stream?topic=mytopic&type=vp8" type="video/webm">

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.

Still looking for guidance on how to use the vp8 stream. Unable to get an usable stream with the vp8 type. For instance, the quality param is specified as a default of "realtime", but how can we know what the other options are?
