Subject [jira] [Resolved] (CB-910) Consecutive photographs with the camera of the Asus Transformer pad causes java.lang.OutOfMemoryError
Date Wed, 20 Jun 2012 15:09:43 GMT


Simon MacDonald resolved CB-910.

    Resolution: Fixed

I've added some code in order to reduce the likelihood of this problem occurring. The root
cause of the issue is that in order to compress the JPEG file to a different quality level
Android requires the entire image be loaded in memory. The size of the image in memory is
width x height x 4 in bytes. So for recent cameras the image can take upwards of 20 mb of

With my fix you need to specify a quality of 100 so the image is not compressed. Any other
value will cause the image to be compressed which leads to the issue.

In order to fix the compression problem I'm going to open another ticket where we will need
to write our own jpg compression algorithm.

>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Android
>    Affects Versions: 1.7.0, 1.8.0
>         Environment: Android 4.0.3, PhoneGap 1.8.0 OR PhoneGap 1.7.0, Asus Transformer
> (if I run the same code, or any other using camera in iPad2, Samsung Galaxy 2, no problems)
>            Reporter: Susanna Huhtanen
>            Assignee: Simon MacDonald
>            Priority: Minor
>              Labels: features
>             Fix For: 1.9.0
> 1. Expected outcome:
> I can take consecutive photographs with the camera of the device.
> 2. The actual outcome:
> After a few pictures has been taken the application crashes.
> 3.
> Wrap the index.html in Android 4.0.3, launch the app on the Asus Transformer, take pictures,
anything from 2-5 pictures makes the app to crash. If you alter the code and create a local
storage where to store the url and some text, the second picture is always enough to crash
the app with the same crash report.
