  • Hello,

    Are you using a Nokia phone to test? Are you getting an error from the MediaCapture API?

    There is a known issue in the camera driver on some (but not all) Windows based Nokia phones. We are currently investigating the issue and understand the root cause. We are currently working with Nokia and other partners to resolve this known issue.

    I hope this helps,

  • Hello,

    While I can tell you that we are working with Nokia on this unfortunately I cannot give you a specific timeline for release.

  • I am also having lots of troubles with this. At the moment, I can only provide manual focus in my app, because auto values are leading to app crashes.

    I hope you will be able to sort this out as soon as possible (now that you are Nokia ;-)).
