How to: test GStreamer-droid based camera support in Ubuntu Touch (for Halium 7.1 based port)
@peat_psuwit i am testing with the oneplus3t, i guess i'll have to reinstall then.
thanks for the help!
I removed both minimediaservice & miniafservice, camera don't work, got "Camera service not found", but the driver is loaded correctly and system detect 3 cameras.
I think there is problem in sensor or sound, because got many errors in logcat.
Also why /data/misc/media is empty, there is no media_codecs_profiling_results.xml.
Fixes video recording on garlic ,halium-7.1 with/without minimedia, miniaf and minisf services. For initial few shots from front camera were purple .
@pbt100 interesting, does your device have a delayed wake from sleep as a result of no mediaservice? Somewhere along the line an update broke video recording on my device
@tigerpro minimediaservice was the last thing i added to the port to only fix wake lag and it broke bluetooth ,on mine, video recorder working with/without it though
Tested on FP2 -> works like a charm.
The execution of taking a photo is superfast now, compared to legacy-image.
Rear-camera and capturing videos does work too.
@pbt100 @tigerpro The wake lag without
minimediaserviceshould be fixed by including this commit into your Halium tree: https://github.com/Halium/android_frameworks_native/pull/6 (And if it works please add some voice to the PR. Thanks!)
@Luksus You've compiled Halium-7.1 image yourself? Also, is it with the old or new camera modules? I don't have new camera modules myself, so I would like to know how that works.
@peat_psuwit : yes I compiled it myself.
It is with the new camera module, I don't have the older one.
There is no HDR function as it used to be with the legacy-port, but I assume its just not implemented?!
So far, the camera-experience is way better, than with the legacy-port.
@Luksus I dont know of thats necessarily the case as the camera app on my note 4 has HDR available, I typically dont use it though
Some update, i've tried to follow your tchat with Walid on Telegram history.
See the logs :
