Success: Simultaneous Front and Back Camera Access on a HTC One M8

In my previous post  I described my unsuccessful tries on getting simultaneous front and back camera access on a Galaxy S5.  I just got a new HTC One M8 and was surprised that it also had a dual camera app (just like the S5) so I tried my code again.

It turned out that it actually works on the HTC device see video below.

The code which relies on OpenCV 2.4.9 can be found here:

    Great work! Does your OpenCV/C++ code for dual cameras work with this device? I’m also interested in accessing both cameras, I even consider buying a One (M8) if above works!
    Thank you!!

      Hi,

      the OpenCV Java API should work as it only wraps the Android API. Iam not sure about the C++ API. Anyways, you could simply forward the images via JNi into the native layer and use you C++ code from that point on.

      Best,
      Jens
