New York, Nov 1: The developers of Firefox web browser, Mozilla Labs has released a developer edition of Firefox add-on which helps users to record audio and video on the browser.

Mozilla Labs stated on its blog that the Rainbow add-on for Firefox enables web developers to access local video and audio recording capabilities using just a few lines of JavaScript.

The add-on generates files encoded in open formats in an Ogg container, where the video format is called as Theora and audio format as Vorbis. The resulting files are accessible in DOM using HTML5 File APIs, which may be used to upload them to a server.

Mozilla Labs told that the company is working hard to extend support to Windows, Linux and 64 bit platforms.
