Hello,

I am using the new libraries in order to make the camera work. However to no avail.
I have downloaded an app that succesfully uses the front camera of my android device. However i cannot do the same on my own by code.

I need help to find out how i can achieve what "CameraFi" app succesfully does that i can't do with B4A.

My code is simple:

B4X:
camX2.Initialize(pnlDemoVideo)
   camX2.OpenCamera(True)
When the opencamera function is set it returns id="" it has not found a camera...

Thanks Erel,

I went back to CameraEx and it works better.

However its not the only issue but it has nothing to do with B4A.

For information i am using a chinese made android tv... and the power from the motherboard is insufficient to power up the camera at the same time as other USB equipments plugged in. Its a hardware issue that i found out, i will have to talk to my distributor.

Y.
