Take a Screenshot on Current Scene

I would like to take screenshot without plugin.
I tried to use "toDataURL("image/jpeg")" this javascript code but didn't work. I think I am missing some point.

It is possible and there are a couple of forum threads that deal with this, but there are still issues with various browsers where it will not work due to the implementation of the imagebuffer of something like that. In Webkit browsers (safari/IOS), you won't get this to work for now.

So the best way is using plugin right?

Plugin in progress, but still have an issue on iPad 2 (looks like the buffer is cleaned onloadcomplete....)
Working example here

Hi Jerome,

Is this plugin available to buy? Even not working in every browser at the moment, I would like to try it.
