Hardly an expert in this field, but wouldn't implementing media tags
(video and audio) a tad like websockets be a good idea. Using the tag
should add a special header that says it can upgrade conneciton to
something like "media" which constantly lets client have duplex
conversation with the server, which can give all sorts of information
about the client side like desired bitrate, desired camera, player
state(pause, resume,etc) which will have reasonable default behaviour,
but can be set or taken over by javascript if needed.

On the other hand, if the server end was not happy with the upgrade
request, the browser cann fall back to current behaviour

just my two cents
