Subject [jira] [Closed] (CB-13860) Support taking pictures automatically
Date Sun, 11 Feb 2018 12:21:00 GMT


jcesarmobile closed CB-13860.
    Resolution: Won't Do

That's out of the scope of the plugin. Doing something like that would require a complete
rewrite of the plugin as, as you say, it uses intents now and it's not possible to do it with
intents (same for iOS).
There are 3rd party plugins available with such functionality, and it's also possible on Android
using getUserMedia without plugins

>                 URL:
>             Project: Apache Cordova
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>          Components: cordova-plugin-camera
>    Affects Versions: cordova-android-7.0.0
>         Environment: All
>            Reporter: Benjamin Hill
>            Priority: Minor
>              Labels: features
> All of the code seems to be directed at the use case of "send user to Camera app intent,
let them take a picture, get the results"
> Which is great, unless you want to do something automatic, like taking a picture on a
timer, or taking a picture every second to create a time-lapse, etc. 
> Proposed: A new API call that lets the camera's parameters (focus, exposure etc) stabilize
and immediately snaps the pic and returns.
> The example at [] looks
like it is taking a frame from the Video feed, which is lower res, ideal would be a full-still-res
