Notes

The MSStream object is a Document Object Model (DOM) type that represents a stream of unsized, sequential binary data. You use the MSStream object for data that you are converting to a Blob object for use in a JavaScript application. MSStream is backed by IInputStream. The MSStream object also allows interopt with XHR and HTML tags. An MSStream is consumed or created in the following areas:

  • XmlHttpRequest (XHR)
  • Canvas
  • IndexedDB
  • PostMessage

You create the Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) for the MSStream object using the window.URL.createObjectURL method. MSStream is intended for a one-time use only; the URI is revoked when it is resolved by the HTML element that is consuming the stream.
