Description

This was a bug I originally saw in older builds, but was fixed. Looks like it's back. The camera's output is entirely obscured by a grey area. If I switch to another view, and then back to the activity's view, I can briefly see the camera's output before it is obscured again.

Zack, I think it is important for us to know how the camera works on B2 machines, but we aren't going to fix it if it is due to the known problem in B2 (bug #1602). Next time you are in the office, let's see if we can swap out a couple of your B2 units for B3 or B4.

The test groups need to have machines from different builds.

If we confirm that this occurs only on B2 and it is due to known bug, #1602, then we can close this.

I found this bug on the one B3 that we have, and it isn't bug #1602. I agree that we should have more B3s and B4s.

I've found that, on the latest builds, this problem doesn't occur shortly after booting - the real-time display will work just fine - but the grey screen becomes more likely as the system is on longer.

It's definitely not as bad as it used to be, though, where it never worked.

Fixed by Dan in Camera.activity.

Dan, I'm reassigning it to you so you close it when the updated code hits the builds.

  • status changed from new to closed
  • resolution set to fixed

Appears to be fixed in current builds, thus closing.

(But now we have (unrelated) XVideo corruption on B2)
