Embed API does not prevent OS level screen captures. Are you asking how to render a portion of a page to an image?

"Are you asking how to render a portion of a page to an image? "

Yes. But I want to be able to do it from the frontend, from client side.
I'd rather not do that from the backend.

 

I would like to use `result [0] .target.selector.boundingBox`, plus margin.

Ok - That's quite complicated even with basic HTML that's not inside a canvas. Take a look at the top answer on Stack here. You might be able to use the html2canvas script but I have not tried it personally.

html2canvas doesn't work at all for iframe.

As if to have access to the contents of an iframe, it would be possible.
