Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-6249) Camera fails to return an actual FILE_URI it always returns content://
Date Mon, 17 Mar 2014 15:21:43 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CB-6249?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13937909#comment-13937909

Ian Clelland commented on CB-6249:
----------------------------------

If you really absolutely need a {{file://}} URL, one possible solution is to copy or move
the picture out of its default location, and get a file URL from there. Something like this
may work:

{code}
window.requestFileSystem(PERSISTENT, 0, function(fileSystem) {
  window.resolveLocalFileSystemURL(imageURI, function(entry){
    entry.moveTo(fileSystem.root.toURL, null, function(newEntry) {
      console.log("New location: " + newEntry.toNativeURL());
    }, function(e) {
      console.error('Error moving picture: '+ e.code);
    });
  }, function(e) {
    console.error('Error resolving URL: '+ e.code);
  });
}, function(e) {
  console.error('Error requesting file system: '+ e.code);
});
{code}

On the other hand, you may not need a {{file://}} URL. at all; Cordova (and the webview) should
be just as happy working with {{content://}} URLs as {{file://}} ones. Are you doing anything
specific that requires the file scheme?

> I always get content://... for the returned path from camera and even the same thing
when I resolve the url. Can you confirm this bug?
