CameraCapabilities.fileFormats

Non-standard
This feature is not on a current W3C standards track, but it is supported on the Firefox OS platform. Although implementations may change in the future and it is not supported widely across browsers, it is suitable for use in code dedicated to Firefox OS apps.

This API is available on Firefox OS for privileged or certified applications only.

Summary

The fileFormats property is an Array identifying the file formats supported by the camera, such as jpeg, rgb565, etc.

Syntax

var formats = instanceOfCameraControl.capabilities.fileFormats

Value

Return an Array of strings.

Example

var options = {
  camera: navigator.mozCameras.getListOfCameras()[0]
};
 
function onSuccess(camera) {
  var formats = camera.capabilities.fileFormats;

  formats.forEach(function (value) {
    console.log(value)
  });
};

navigator.mozCameras.getCamera(options, onSuccess)

Specification

Not part of any specification; however, this API should be removed when the WebRTC Capture and Stream API has been implemented.
