Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-6359) resolveLocalFileSystemURL continues to be inconsistent, now fails specifically on Galaxy Note 3 when capturing video only
Date Thu, 27 Mar 2014 18:27:16 GMT


Ralph S Theart commented on CB-6359:

ok maybe I missed something but media capture continues to return file:/storage/extSdCard/DCIM/Camera/20140327_141754.mp4
may be I missed a step?

> Ok this is a very strange bug. Some background first though. I have 10 test devices at
my house so I can test the apps I make. Of the 10 devices 8 are android. My app works across
the board on all of them flawlessly. So I already know its not something related to my set
up or my code. Out of the *10* devices one specific feature seems to fail on one specific
device (Galaxy Note 3). When you capture video and try to resolve the URI you will always
get error core 5 every single time no matter what changes you make or conditions. Here is
the code.
> {code}
> navigator.device.capture.captureVideo(function(mediaFiles){
> 	        var mediaFilePath = mediaFiles[0].fullPath;
>                 window.resolveLocalFileSystemURL(mediaFilePath, function(){
>                        ///never gets this far
>                 }, function(error){
>                        console.log(error.code);
>                        *Always fails with error code 5*
>                 });
> 	    }, function(error){
> 			var msg = 'Messages > captureVideo():: An error occurred during video capture:
' + error.code;
> 			console.log(msg, null, 'Uh oh!');
>            });
> {code}
> For this device and this specific scenario the path returned by capture is always something
like this: *file:/storage/extSdCard/DCIM/Camera/20140327_104747.mp4* ....yes I noticed the
"file:/" and have even tried replacing it with "file:///" and it still continues to fail.
> btw ...I have a lot of devices I test with you guys have these kind of facilities.
I'm more than happy to help with any testing...I built up a rigorous excel sheet full of tests
among which are all of the media type api's. I did this because resolveLocalFileSystemURL
has become a problem child for me since 3.4 I have already submitted 3 bugs 1 of which was
solved and actually made it to the 1.0.1  File-System update. The 2nd one is solved now too.
I wouldn't care if the device this was happening to was old and was on an older firmware like
4.0.3 but this is a popular device especially in our database any help would be appreciated.
