@luksus No, that's a separate issue. Audio does go through pulseaudio already in QtWebEngine, so microphone can be used, but camera on Android based devices is done via a Qt plug-in which talks to the Android HAL via libhybris, however video/camera support in QtWebEngine does not go through QtMultimedia, therefore it does not use that plug-in. Instead, it expects v4l devices, and QtWebEngine itself has no knowledge of what libhybris is or how to use it.
Therefore, someone needs to do the work to write a system service which bridges the Android HAL for CameraService as v4l compatible device on the Ubuntu side of things, so that apps using v4l for camera access will just work.
I went back and installed the original Ubuntu Touch with the SPFlash Tool and was able to update to the latest UBPorts version using the desktop app with no issues after that. Thanks for the prompt feedback everyone.
With BQ formally out of business now, it will give my M10FHD some extended life. I still remember how excited I was when it arrived from Spain here in the US way back when.
I will send a donation to the UB Ports Team as soon as I finish checking everything out.
@marathon2422 I have a BQ M10 HD running OTA 15. It connects to my Panasonic TV with my Blackberry Playbook HDMI cable. Video playback is great, but no audio over HDMI. All you get is audio from tablet speaker. Such a shame.
it is possible to reach system settings via the battery indicator, so you can update to the latest version or change channels. Touching the "about" icon while in system settings will cause a crash.
