HTML5: Access Back Camera?


Lauren Kelly

Question

Right now if you view any of the WebRTC broadcast examples (root, peer, conference, etc.) it auto-defaults to the front camera if you're on a mobile device.

Is there a way to allow the user to toggle between front and back camera? I know you offer this in iOS but I am hoping it's possible in javascript.

Is there any way to select the back camera when streaming WebRTC from an iPhone?

Hi Lauren.

We are going to include it in our future releases, in the meantime, you can still use back camera, by setting
 mediaConstraints to { audio: true, video: { facingMode: { exact: "environment" } } }

This feature is now available in the latest snapshot.

It supports both mobile(back, front) and desktop browsers(usb cameras).

Great news and it does work well, but important to note in Safari but NOT in Chrome
