Welcome back on the desktop blog in the New Year! Our batteries are fully loaded, we hope yours too
, so lets start this year with something interesting, that will catch your eyes! Let us share with you an experimental Camera build, which we made available at Opera Labs
. From now on you can set and manage privacy settings for the camera directly from the UI, which wasn't possible in earlier build
we showed you. When you are visiting the page, that wants to use your camera, you'll be asked to grant permission to camera stream for that site via special notification callout.
This new privacy settings interface contains information about all used devices, including geolocation settings.
With the getusermedia support you don't depend on the 3rd party plugins or special extensions. Everything what you need is just Opera Browser ... oh and web camera of course!
So if you have some webcam plug it in, grab the build from Opera Labs
and check how it works!Developer notes: If you've tried to use camera with our previous labs camera build, notice that we are up to date with latest specification. Remember to use video as an object instead of a string when accessing video stream through getusermedia.
