Hi , 

I am using imx6Q with Android 8.0.
I have managed to work uvc camera Logitech C525 with the setup .
The issue is I get a mirrored image and to get the desired image I have to use it as front camera.
I have modified init.rc to configure the camera as front camera.

setprop back_camera_name 0
setprop front_camera_name uvc 

After this change my camera doesn't work at all and I get the following error in the logcat :

Hello,

 

Since it is a web camera you will of course get a mirrored image. Nevertheless, you may refer to the driver V4L2 IOCT- IPU_ROTATE_HORIZ_FLIP in the i.MX6Q BSP to flip the image horizontally.

 

Hope it helps!

 

BR,

Ivan.

Hi Ivan , 

Thank You for your reply.

Previously I used Android 7.1 (Nougat) and to fix this issue I modified the camera.h file and changed the parameter CAMERA_FACING_BACK = 1; from its default value 0. So now my back camera was mirror and was similar to front camera facing showing exact image.

When I try the same with Android 8.0 it doesn't work . 
Can you please tell me in detail where the orientation is set in Android 8.0

Hello,

 

Instead of modifying directly from the camera, you may try to flip the image horizontally as I already mentioned. The driver is available in the BSP.

 

Hope it helps!

 

BR,

Ivan.
