webcam / mic in browser widget

Post by makeshyft » Fri Oct 27, 2017 6:44 pm

Hi folks, will access to the webcam / mic ever work inside a browser widget?

Whats the story / limitation with that?

Thanks,

Tom

Fortunately, this is meanwhile the same "problem" for all browsers (and thus the browser widget):
There is no way to get access without user's permission.

So you have to find a cross browser solution (javascript) that matches your needs, for example https://github.com/jhuckaby/webcamjs
and then can use that from LC by doing javascript in the widget.
shiftLock happens
