  • The User Media object never worked on CocoonJS, because CocoonJS does not support the HTML5 standard for video capture. For a short time we had experimental support using the custom CocoonJS API, but it was buggy (rotated 90 degrees on Android) and didn't support any useful features like taking screenshots. Since it was broken and not useful in any way, we removed support for it.

    You're right that it shouldn't break the app just by being present though - that's fixed in the next build, but it still isn't supported.

  • Ashley thank you for you answer! :) At least now I can move on.

  • Ashley is there any way to use the CocoonJS Camera extension? That seems to do the trick watching the demo but I have no idea how to integrate that in Construct.

  • That's what I was talking about when I said we tried it with their custom API, but it was buggy and didn't support any useful features.
