Chrome 47 and Opera 34 : HTTPS requirements for getting Stream

As of Chrome 47 and Opera 34, getUserMedia will not work in http: run Web applications anymore, which means end-users cannot retrieve their local stream on these pages.


Running http:// on localhost will still continue to work, but in production like sites: getaroom.io, myappexample.com would not work.
