B4A Class Class media

Hi,

An easy way to take/record/choose photo/video/audio with this small class (clMedia.bas).

No permission needed

It uses intents to call default app.

3 constants for media type
cPhoto = 0
cVideo=1
cAudio=2

2 constants for origin
cNew=0
cChoose=1

1 method to call with 2 parameters (media type, origin)
media(cPhoto,cNew)

The 2 properties DirName and FileName contains the path to the media

How to use it ?:
    Dim m As clMedia
    m.Initialize(Me)
    wait for (m.media(m.cPhoto,m.cNew)) complete (aresult As Boolean)
    If aresult Then
        'copy the media in the internal app folder
        File.Copy(m.DirName,m.FileName,File.DirInternal,"file")
        Log("Media size : " & File.Size(File.DirInternal,"file"))
    End If

Add this lines to your manifest for the file provider
Manifest - File provider:
'file provider
AddApplicationText(
  <provider
  android:name="android.support.v4.content.FileProvider"
  android:authorities="$PACKAGE$.provider"
  android:exported="false"
  android:grantUriPermissions="true">
  <meta-data
  android:name="android.support.FILE_PROVIDER_PATHS"
  android:resource="@xml/provider_paths"/>
  </provider>
)
CreateResource(xml, provider_paths,
   <files-path name="name" path="shared" />
)

A demo project is attached (media.zip)
