MediaRecorderErrorEvent is fired when Media Recording API faces an error. This API will enable developers to debug more conveniently when an exception occurs in Media Recording API. MediaRecorderErrorEvent will provide further details about the error with a DOMException object. BUG: SPEC:


The main motivation is that currently Chromium fires a plain event, whereas if this feature is implemented the developers will have more knowledge about the occurred error in Media Recording API and debug conveniently.
