[Camera Plugin] Camera not working on Windows

When I use the Camera Plugin on Windows as a PWA, it opens up a file browser window to select an existing image. It will not give me the option to take a new photo. This happens even with the Camera Plugin Demo so I do not believe that it is something that I am doing wrong in my app.

Does anyone have experience getting this to work on Windows?

Hello Dan,

Try use this component

https://www.outsystems.com/forge/component-overview/7997/pwa-camera-microphone

hope it helps,

Regards.

There's no way to get the regular Camera Plugin to work in this use case? I'd prefer to use components that are officially-supported by OutSystems, especially for something that seems as common as accessing the camera. The component that you linked to hasn't been updated for over 2 years.
