    CameraManager

    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.

    The CameraManager interface provides access to any cameras available on the device being used.

    Properties

    This interface doesn't implements, nor inherits any property.

    Methods

    CameraManager.getCamera()
    Gets a camera instance based on its identifier.
    CameraManager.getListOfCameras()
    Returns an Array of all camera identifiers available on the device.

    Specification

    Not part of any specification as yet; this will probably be replaced by WebRTC when it gains more widespread support on mobile devices.

    Permissions

    Up until Firefox OS 1.4, The Camera API was a certified API, so not accessible to third party apps. From Firefox OS 2.0 onwards, the permission level has been downgraded to privileged, so it is now available for developers to use in their apps.

    "permissions": {
      "camera": {
        "description": "Required for accessing cameras on the device."
      }
    }
