capturing video with the cameracaptureUI RRS feed

  • Question

  • hello guys.

    I want to capture video with my web cam. can someone tell me why do I need to set the microphone capability to make it work? (without it, I receive an error when I start saving the video)

    In other words, setting only the web cam permission is not enough for capturing videos, though it does allow me to take pictures. it does not make sense because I should be able to capture video without audio (in fact, I have no mic connected to the system)

    thanks.

    PS: just to make it clear, what I'm saying is that the CameraCaptureUI should have a property which enables/disables audio support. I shouldn't have to build my own dialog because my app does not support audio and I don't want to enable that capability in the manifest...

  • Hi Luis,

    I understand.

    This is by design.  There is no way to recored a Video without Audio.  If you do not have a microphone it will simply recored a silent video.

  • Yes, that is correct.

    What I'm suggesting is exposing a property which will let me enable or disable the audio. Disabling the audio would mean not having to enable the microphone capability.
