When Click on the change camera icon, on IOS (Safari) is keeps showing the front camera.

I also tested this on Android (Chrome) phone and there I had to click 2 times to view the rear camera.

Do you have a solution or workaround for this?

Hi Kevin,

I included this issue in the backlog and I will try to address it soon. 



Hi Kevin,

I´ve uploaded a new version to fix this. If you had some opportunity, please download this new version and try it again.  

Thanks for your feedback.


Hi Fabio,

I tested this on IOS with safari and this works fine. 

When I do this on Android I notice I have 2 front camera's and 1 back camera. This explains why I had to click 2 times on the change icon in the previous version.

I have one more small problem on IOS, when I open the camera the first time I receive a  popup to allow access to the camera and when I allow it I only have the front camera.  I think this is a problem in Safari or IOS

A workaround is to configure in safari that access to the camera is always allowed.

Thanks for the update


Hi Fabio, 

I have one little problem on Andriod because I only can view an image from the front camera. When I select any of the "facing back" cameras I get "black" screen. (I'm testing on different android mobile with more than 1 back camera)

Do you have a solution or workaround for this? Thanks!
