News: The Andriod SDK and the Camera Class?

  1. The Andriod SDK and the Camera Class? (1 messages)

    The Android SDK includes a Camera class that is used to set image capture settings, start/stop preview, snap pictures, and retrieve frames for encoding for video. It is a handy abstraction of the real hardware device. However, the SDK doesn't provide any camera emulation, something that makes testing camera enabled applications quite difficult. In this tutorial, I am going to show you how to use a web camera in order to obtain a live camera preview. Check out the tutorial at the following URL:
