Hey Paul,

does this app just reference the Camera class in Gallery3D.Google.apk? I noticed that they're the same package on my Gnex running Jelly Bean. Is it the same case on 7?

how does it work exactly?

vinca :D

Don't know if its the launcher app or the Facebook app, but my FB app can't find the camera when trying to upload a photo. You can pass through to the gallerys, and upload those pics tho.

Have you tried clearing app data for Google play and Google play services? Usually sorts it...;)

Every time I press the camera launcher, I get this error msg. I cannot, for the life of me, get the camera launcher to work. I can take pictures with facebook app and can use camera with google talk and skype.

AOKP 8/8/12 nightly, Trinity kernel TS-ALPHA50, gapps from post #2 here - http://rootzwiki.com...m-stock-nexus7/ .
I've also tried the 7/26 gapps from goo.im and these gapps http://rootzwiki.com...-gapps-package/ , but I still can't get this camera launcher to work. What am I doing wrong here?

Hi. I have a Nexus 7 16G, and yesterday downloaded the camera launcher and it works great, videos, panoramic, still shots, etc. Perfect.

I downloaded Skype and voice calls are also perfect.

However, when I try for a Skype video call, the screen blinks as though the camera is about to come on, then it doesn't, and reverts back to the Skype-Head. The Skype video settings seem to be right. The voice portion of the call works fine, just no video.

I've been searching this and other forums (fora?) and have seen other people post the same problem, but no answers. Is this the right place to ask for help, advice, guidance to get the camera to work?

FWIW, I read downloading Skype *then* the camera might be a problem, so I uninstalled them both and reinstalled them in 1. Camera, 2. Skype order.

I'd appreciate any guidance or, if this isn't the right place for this question, a pointer to a better place. Thanks!

This is currently unsupported on AOKP, I will fix it soon tho.

Hmmm, I'm getting the exact same response and my N7 is rooted/unlocked but other than that, completely stock. Any help???

only advice I got is use a different camera app :P

I don't understand how it's ROM related though. wouldn't this be an issue with whatever gapps you flash?

I'm using the MoDaCo camera launcher and I've taken several videos, playing around with the face stuff and what-not. I plug the N7 into my HTPC to import the hilarity that has already ensued and I can't find them anywhere. I've tried both modes available (MTP and Camera, I think).

Help? I need to send back that N7 and I don't have a lot of time left to do it...

Hi Paul and thanks for your great application. I want ask you if you can update It for the Jelly Bean 4.2 because the icon is old and the application sometimes crashes. Thanks. :-)
