Use desktop/laptop camera to record video

Is there a way to trigger the desktop browser to use it’s camera to record a video and upload it (I have a reactive application)? I use the camera plug-in for mobile and it works great (asks if I want to upload or take a video), but on a desktop browser it only asks to upload. Thanks

Hi @Fadi Zananiri ,

For your use case, you should try implementing the PWA Camera plugin as suggested by Tousif.

But for this you have to distribute your Reactive app as a PWA. This will require you to transform the reactive application to mobile however, but it does run on desktop/laptop browsers.
