As I don’t see anyone working on this (maybe I’m wrong?) I’ll take a stab at it and attempt to implement Camera2 API support. As a developer with 10+ years of experience how hard can it be ?
All joking aside, I have substantial experience in Java and Python but almost none in C++ so any help to get me started with setting up the project is welcome as I don’t see any guidelines how one actually develops and debugs internal components for SFOS.
So let’s get started with basic information - we have release blog for version 4.4 that states the following:
Sailfish OS hooks into the Android Camera API to access the camera firmware. The glitch exists in this version of the API, but is fixed in the Camera2 API. Switching Sailfish OS to use the Camera2 API is a large, but not impractical, amount of work. What’s more, because the code that needs changing is open source, and we’ve had a number of excellent contributions to the camera pipeline from the community in the past, we’re hoping we can work together with you i the community to get this resolved in a future release.
I have created a fork of droidmedia project and, for starters, two bits of information would be extremely helpful:
- Where are the other (non-main) lenses disabled in SFOS?
- Are there any guides how to setup droidmedia project for development? If I open it in Sailfish IDE i get a bunch of dependency errors.
