@rocket2nfinity said in Camera rotation:
ubports-qa install xenial_-_gst-droid
Trying on devel, this step attempts to upgrade 31 packages, and downgrade 3: ubuntu-sdk-libs ubuntu-touch-core ubuntu-touch-hybris
It doesn't seem like a good idea... it is probably too old a solution.
Did it solve the problem back then?
@lgtrombetta It did then, but not now. Just tried it. Crashes Unity 8 UI. Easily fixed with an update though. So no harm no foul.
@Flohack What's the current method to get the camera files oriented right in the gallery now?
@rocket2nfinity It's not a good idea to use apt right now due to the ongoing merging of qt5.12. Try again once the completion of this activity has been announced.
Yeah camera is a problem....
Well the gstdroid branch installation is still the option of choice. Actually we are in the process of merging those pieces together, but now everything is blocked by the Qt 5.12 upgrade - that means, currently installing custom packages with apt can easily break your system, so its not recommended. I would say in a few days it should work flawlessly again
That said, this will fix rotation and allow pictures from both cameras, but it will probably break video recording as N6P is one of those 64bit devices where this branch causes a strange regression. I hope we will be able to fix this soonish.
@flohack @kugiigi @rocket2nfinity thank you for the information. I guess I'll have to wait until after the Qt 5.12 upgrade.
About video recording, for me it isn't working anyway, so if at least we can fix the camera rotation it would be an overall improvement.
I just realized now that this problem has been solved (devel). Camera now rotates images properly. I don't know exactly when it happened.
In any case, great work!
@lgtrombetta Strange, how did this happen lol
I will test and try to confirm
Not quite solved. Selfies show up sideways.
@rocket2nfinity yeah but the good news is: Recording seems to work, can you try
@flohack @rocket2nfinity Indeed, only the back camera is rotating pictures properly.
Could it have been the Qt 5.12 update?
@flohack It's recording something. But can't play it back with media viewer, nor UT Media player
@Flohack I stand corrected, it does play if i select the file through files in UT Media.
Magic?, Or did you do something?

It might be the same thing as for the Nexus 5.
Video playback doesn't work, but UT Media might be working with CPU handling video decoding...
Edit: I think opening a file using UT Media player doesn't work.
But opening the file from it is working.

@applee One can also use this brand new video player for Ubuntu Touch (just released some minutes ago). Works fine with my Nexus 5....

I echo Stan's comments about the new player on N5, but then Media Player also works for me.
@stanwood strange. It (uvideo player) just opens with a blank black screen on mine. Does not play videos.

@rocket2nfinity Ohhh, strange. Do you also use a Nexus 5?
@stanwood Not anymore. Donated it.

@stanwood It's nice to go to the forum and read that my app is already recommended. Thank you so much
I have now paused the development of this project (I am working on another project).
In the future, I plan to:
- Add IPTV support.
- Desktop-mode support (waiting MHL adapter)
- And support for video subtitles
