  • Can't reproduce in either Chrome or Firefox here. Make sure you didn't previously deny permission in preview, otherwise the browser will block any access from localhost ever again unless you go in to settings and clear the block.

  • Ashley I have a project I'm working on that that requires the webcam function to call upon the camera feed as a background. I got it working on HTML5, tested on a few Android devices also working, but on iOS devices it comes out with "Not Supported! Try using Chrome 21+"

    Is there a way to resolve this or can you create a plugin to resolve this issue? I'm willing to do this as a paid job. Thanks for any help!

  • Pariunos - please don't reply to closed bug reports. Also like the error suggests iOS Safari simply does not support the feature and there is nothing that can be done about it.
