Front Camera for i900

Recommended Posts

Hello folks.

It's me again :D . Im really spamming you these days with new topics.

So the today's topic is that i found a small program that actually triggers the Front Camera of i900 (as far as i know i910 dont have camera?) and you can actually take pictures with it.

It is nothing special, picture quality is crap of the front camera but hey :angry: it works!!!

You can act like a james bond maybe with a mirror camera ;) (yeah right..)

So here is the cab: XTKit.com_Omnia_Front_Camera.cab

Thanks to XTkit.com

Enjoy

Correct good sir. The i910 does not include a front camera as its intent was video calls if i'm not mistaken, which we can't do over CDMA networks (currently.) Nice app to have for self portraits i suppose lol. You do have some good finds, i'm sure we all don't mind your "spamming" :D

Hmm, it works, but the aspect ratio is waay off. Is there a way to set the resolution to 352x288? Oh, and it didn't put a shortcut in the start menu :D

Finally, only problem is the resolution and quality as the quality is worse than on my first phone that had camera :D, it's easier to just turn the phone and use the camera on the back, not to mention much more effective :angry:

You can download again and install

But then you don't get the privilege to see yourself ;)

Not to mention the time you need to get in the perfect position this way ;)

Thanks,

Where are the pictures stored? i couldn't find them? :D

=D

The pictures are stored in '\Program Files\XTKit.com\Omnia Front Camera'

@Sector, how about making the cab add a shortcut to DCIM which would point to this folder? It would make it more user friendly :angry:

Verizon just crippled it. CDMA users can do video calls, just we need to send the video AND audio as data. I know because when I went on vacation, I video chatted with aim on my computer tethered to my phone. We just need a way to do that with phones instead of computers. Verizon just can't tell the difference, probably, between internet browsing, and the streaming needed for the video chat (and their motto: if we can't find a way to charge them for it, we won't let them have it).

Yeah, none of the 3 available size ratios are really useable on the Omnia. Any chance of adding options such as 240x400?

What do you mean by usable? I think 240x240 looks the most normal, perhaps that's the camera's native resolution?

You can tap on the screen in the white area and select the size of your picture manually... it doesn't work too well but keep in mind this app is just for fun.

Does this program work with Samsung Omnia II (i8000) (WM 6.5)?

Can it be used with Skype?

Would be awesome!

Just one thing, how do i activate the video call?
