Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-12710) Camera - [SUNSET | KEEP | INTEGRATE]
Date Thu, 27 Apr 2017 14:06:04 GMT


Filip Maj commented on CB-12710:

This should be definitely maintained, although we should look at where the state of built-in
platform support is at.

Transitioning this API would be a challenge, I think. This plugin covers a bunch of different
kinds of functionality under its umbrella:

 - taking a picture with the camera
 - choosing a picture from a gallery/picture store application
 - recording a video

The relevant W3C specs to those kinds of features include:

 - The one you referenced, Simon, the media capture image spec:
 - Note that the above spec relies on objects ({{MediaStream}} in particular) provided by
the media capture and streams spec:
 - There is a separate spec, also based on {{MediaStream}}, that provides a "simple" API for
recording streams (both audio and video):
 - Finally, there is also an addition of recording streams of media (audio, video, image)
via HTML elements:

Sorting through all of that, to me, is a big task, but a necessary one if we want cordova
device APIs to remain spec-relevant.
