@masterchop Normally you cannot access the Android camera via v4l devices. If they are there, they are only used internally by the camera blob drivers. You would need to access the camera via an abstraction layer, as we do with our camera services for QML/Qt applications, since it needs to be initialized, activated in the correct way.
See Documentation for how to build the click with dependencies. You can check which dependencies can be installed from Ubuntu 16.04 Xenial repos in a version that fits the requirement. Maybe you'll find also PPAs to provide them. Otherwise you need to build them yourself.
But all of this is mentioned in the documentation linked above.
@keneda Eh, I might submit it to the app store. It would certainly grab attention (not sure if that's a good thing but I'm of the "all news is good news" school).
My bigger concern is after they forked Mastodon to update the back end, the Mastodon community basically shunned their nodes and the founder, who was originally all in on FOSS previously, now seems to want to close-source everything since the experience left a bad taste in his mouth, which is a real shame, since that makes it much more like the other small players in social like Parler and MeWe. There's a lot of talent on that team though, so I can still hope.
@kugiigi thank you for the feedback!
For some reason Seabass can't execute libertine-launch on Nexus 5, although libertine-launch works fine from Terminal. The problem could be somewhere in between seabass, pyotherside, libertine-launch python script and proot (used by libertine-launch), but unfortunately for now i don't know what exactly goes wrong.
Some of the things done here will most likely not be necessary on devices that run Wayland.
I had to add this lines to the .desktop file:
I had to add this line to the .apparmor file:
Otherwise I would get this error:

I had to export this variable to get bigger buttons/text/entries...:
To get an on screen keyboard I installed this packages on my device:
...and exported this variable:
I reply to this old post, because when I searched for a solution, this was one of the first things that came up and I could not find any working examples my self.
Maybe someone will find this helpful or will tell me if my app and my solution also work on other devices.
