Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-248) captureVideo() on iOS doesnt seem to save to the device's photoalbum like captureImage() does
Date Fri, 10 Feb 2012 20:01:00 GMT


Filipe Cruz commented on CB-248:

why not have a boolean option parameter to control this? and document as platform quirks where
it does work and does not.

always better to have more features available then less imho.
with this design you're forcing devs to open another can of worms: figuring out how to handle
file access to photoalbum on all platforms.
i find it abit odd design.

in the case of image it isnt as problematic to "close down" the save to disk. since you can
get it via getPicture() anyways. but getPicture() isnt very friendly for videos, it only allows
to pick one video from photoalbum, not take new one on the fly. whilst for pictures it does
allow to take and store or pick new pictures at will.
