    This error happens because of NatShare. You need to update your Android SDK build tools to 29.

    Oh Is there a way to go back to build Android SDK version 22? Because I think your settings say you need SDK 22 or higher, can you refund the fee if not?

    Hi,Lanre. Firstly, I have to say it was my bad not to use the latest NatCorder(1.5). However I have upgraded to 1.7.1 and the problem is still there.I haven't bought the NatDevices yet so I'm still using NatMic 1.3.3. Below is the code after being upgraded to 1.7.1. With the upgrade it pops up 2 new problems while the old problem remains. One is that there is a green line on right edge of recorded videos. Another is that I have two cameras being streaming to the NatCorder which are in the array RecordCamera as you can see below, but only the first camera is recorded. BTW I'm using Unity 2019.1.13f. Is it a version problem or just my code problem.
    Code (CSharp):
    1.  public void StartRecording () {
    2.             // Start recording
    3.          
    4.             if (Screen.width>Screen.height)
    5.             {
    6.                 videoWidth = 1280;
    7.                 videoHeight = (int)((float)videoWidth / (float)Screen.currentResolution.width *
    8.                        (float)Screen.currentResolution.height);
    9.             }
    10.             else
    11.             {
    12.                 videoHeight = 1280;
    13.                 videoWidth = (int)((float)videoHeight / (float)Screen.currentResolution.height *
    14.                        (float)Screen.currentResolution.width);
    15.             }
    16.             Debug.Log("camera videoWidth " + videoWidth + " videoHeight " + videoHeight);
    17.  
    18.             var sampleRate = 44100;
    19.             var channelCount = 2;
    20.          
    21.             recordingClock = new RealtimeClock();
    22.             videoRecorder = new MP4Recorder(
    23.                 videoWidth,
    24.                 videoHeight,
    25.                 30,
    26.                 sampleRate,
    27.                 channelCount
    28.  
    29.             );
    30.  
    31.             // Create recording inputs
    32.             cameraInput = new CameraInput(videoRecorder, recordingClock, RecordCameras);
    33.             audioDevice = AudioDevice.GetDevices()[0];
    34.             audioDevice.StartRecording(sampleRate, channelCount, this);
    35.  
    36.         }
    37.  
    38.  public async void StopRecording () {
    39.             // Stop the recording inputs
    40.             if (recordMicrophone) {
    41.                 //StopMicrophone();
    42.                 //audioInput.Dispose();
    43.             }
    44.            
    45.  
    46.             audioDevice.StopRecording();
    47.             cameraInput.Dispose();
    48.             // Stop recording
    49.             IsPaused = false;
    50.             var path = await videoRecorder.FinishWriting();
    51.             // Playback recording
    52.             Debug.Log($"Saved recording to: {path}");
    53.             OnReplay(path);
    54.         }
    55.  
    56.  public void OnSampleBuffer(float[] sampleBuffer, int sampleRate, int channelCount, long timestamp)
    57.         {
    58.             videoRecorder.CommitSamples(sampleBuffer, recordingClock.timestamp);
    59.         }

    As I mentioned, this has nothing to with NatDevice. It is a NatShare issue. And the fix for you is to update the Android SDK build tools to version 29. The build tools version is not the same thing as the minimum SDK build level, which is what you seem to be conflating. A Google search is a good start.

    Please post on the NatCorder forum thread. This thread is for NatDevice. A green line indicates padding, which some encoders do when the video dimensions are not standard numbers. Record at 1280x720 instead of calculating the recording height dynamically and the line should disappear. As for your multiple cameras, make sure that your cameras render properly in the scene (read up on the clearing mode for the camera).

    Hello Lanre,

    I recently started using NatDevices Microphone functionality and noticed that the first time I record something I get the following error:



    This does not only happen in my scene and implementation but also in the HotMic example. I'm using Unity 2019.2.21f1, NatDevice is updated to it's current version, XCode is on the most recent version and I run the examples on an iPhone SE with iOS 13.4.

    This only happens the first time, every following recording works flawlessly.

    Do you mean that you can only use Android SDK 29? Then this plugin is completely useless for our company, I need a version that can be used in Android SDK 22. If not, I want to refund

    As I said before, the build tools version is not the same thing as the minimum SDK build level. Please take a moment to re-read my post, and follow the link. I'm sure you'll find a simple Google search to be very insightful.

    I know that building apk minimum SDK build level 29 is successful, but my apk requires the target device to be above minimum SDK build level 23, how can I do it?

    I am putting my issue back on the table.... on Android (we test on BV5500 devices) when passing the device to sleep mode and back, at a certain point "deviceQuery.currentDevice is CameraDevice device" becomes false.

    Is there a way, if this happens, that I destroy and clean up and call "deviceQuery = new MediaDeviceQuery(MediaDeviceQuery.Criteria.GenericCameraDevice);" again ?

    I have no clue how to stop the NatDevice camera things and restart it properly.

    I also have no idea why this is happening. It's rare and it appears to happen only when switching the device on and off and reusing the app.

    Thanks for the help.

    You can't destroy a device query because you don't need to. I'm a bit confused though, what do you mean by passing the device to sleep mode? If you are shutting down the device itself, then all open apps will close. If you are simply suspending the app, then this has nothing to do with the device query. Maybe you are resetting the device query somewhere in your code, unknown to you.

    Not shutting down. Putting the device to "sleep" ... either by pressing the button or by waiting until it passes to sleep itself. So the app is just in the background...
    The app isn't doing any fancy stuff. It's just a UI interface with external api calls. I am not resetting the device query and the code is exactly like the demo that comes with NatDevice.

    I have requested additional testing on the app... let's wait and see if they come back with logcat results

    If the app loses focus then NatDevice will pause any camera device that is running. The media device query is in no way affected by this.

    Hi!

    The link to documentation on the first page if this thread seems to be broken. Can anyone confirm

    a) Is it possible to grab frames from supported camera device and convert those into Unity's Texture2D type?
    b) If yes, is that how performant compared to using Unitys WebCamTexture and turning those into Texture2d (not performant at all).

    I ended up buying this asset now as I guess I have to try this out to see of it's speedier than working with WebCamTexture.

    My problem is that I can't figure out how to open straight away a specific (web)camera device either by name or index. Is it supported?

    Use `MediaDeviceQuery` to find devices. Look at the README for more info.

    Hi Lanre,
    I have run into a problem with memory leak. In my project I am using ArFoundation for camera tracking and occasionally I need to take a picture with the highest possible resolution, so switching from NatDevice to ARSession and back is necessary. I have kept it simple: turn off ARSession, turn on NatDevice, take a picture, turn off NatDevice, turn on ARSession (see the code below). However, after taking several (20-25) pictures the application is crushing due to memorry issues. When running with profiler the application allocates extra 30MB of memory with each taken picture and eventually reaches the maximum (1420MB) and terminates.

    Code (CSharp):
    1. private CameraDevice _nativeCamera;
    2.  
    3. private async void StartNativeCamera()
    4. {
    5.     bool cameraPermissionGranted = await MediaDeviceQuery.RequestPermissions<ICameraDevice>();
    6.     if (cameraPermissionGranted)
    7.     {
    8.         var query = new MediaDeviceQuery(
    9.             device => device is ICameraDevice
    10.         );
    11.         _nativeCamera = query.currentDevice as CameraDevice;
    12.     }
    13. }
    14.  
    15. public void TakeSnapshot()
    16. {
    17.     _nativeCamera.previewResolution = (3264, 2440);
    18.     _nativeCamera.photoResolution = (3264, 2440);
    19.     ARSession.enabled = false;
    20.     await _nativeCamera.StartRunning();
    21.     await Task.Delay(10);
    22.     Texture2D imgTexture = await _nativeCamera.CapturePhoto();
    23.     Destroy(imgTexture);
    24.     _nativeCamera.StopRunning();
    25.     ARSession.enabled = true;
    26. }
    Am I doing something wrong? I have a feeling like I am missing something essential here.

    Observations:
    - When taking single picture, the memory temporarily allocates several 30MB blocks (up to 25). The number of these extra blocks then drops down to "expected" (still not doable) value (one block per taken picture).
    - Commenting out the line with CapturePhoto() method results in no memory leak (no extra 30MB memory blocks allocated at all).

    setup:
    Unity 2019.3.0f6, ARFoundation 3.1.0, iPad 6 - iPadOS 13.4.1, xcode 11.3.1

    Hello, just upgraded my project from NatMic to NatDevice... just using NatDevice to do a simple audio recording using the code provided in HotMic.
    Everything works great during testing.

    - A user sent me a .wav recorded in the updated version of the app that sounds like it's running at about 50% speed, and lower in pitch than it should be.
    I think this can potentially be caused by sample rate confusion somewhere? Maybe the user is using an audio device that's telling the app to record at a weird sample rate?

    The NatDevice HotMic example gets the sample rate from the input device - my instinct is that maybe I should instead lock it down to 44100 - though maybe this will just create more issues?

    The code I'm currently using to set up the recording is:
    Code (CSharp):
    1. audioRecorder = new ClipRecorder(audioRecordingDevice.sampleRate, audioRecordingDevice.channelCount);
    I'm wondering if maybe it would be a safer bet to use:
    Code (CSharp):
    1. audioRecorder = new ClipRecorder(44100, audioRecordingDevice.channelCount);
    Do you have any advice?
    Thank you.

    (Just for reference, the old version of my app had used this code for NatMic, with the sample rate locked):
    Code (CSharp):
    1. audioRecordingDevice.StartRecording(
    2.                     44100,          // Requested sample rate
    3.                     2,              // Requested channel count
    4.                     wavRecorder     // Audio data receiver
    5.                 );

    Can you share your full camera code? You seemed to have pasted in pseudocode (I can tell because you are calling `await` in a method not marked as `async`, which will not compile). I'll try to reproduce on my end.

    What platform does this happen on?
    It depends on whether you're running on iOS actually; all other platforms will work fine with a hard-coded sample rate. On iOS, setting the sample rate on the device will send the request to the system (iOS encapsulates system-wide audio configuration in it's AVAudioSession). Before NatDevice would ignore any request to set the sample rate of the audio device because we weren't sure of the effect on any other audio services (like Unity's FMOD audio engine), but we've changed this to set it anyway. I'm just not sure if this change is live on the Asset Store (gotta check).

    As I've explained, this is not a NatDevice issue (it is an issue with NatShare). And the workaround is to update your Android SDK's build tools to 29 or 30.

    - The user was running on MacOS.

    - Ok - I guess just confirm if you think that hardcoding the sample rate might help avoid the generated AudioClip coming out slower or lower in pitch than intended? Is there anything else that could be causing that?

    Hi Lanre,

    We have tested our App, using NatDevice, a lot now and today the camera crash appeared again.
    Maybe you will be able to make something up from the logcat... maybe I am doing something wrong ?

    Thanks for your feedback !

    You know that the Build Tools SDK isn't the same thing as the target player Android SDK, right? Is there some reason you can't update your compiler SDK? https://stackoverflow.com/questions...-sdk-version-target-sdk-version-vs-compile-sd You shouldn't lose any target platforms by Lanre's suggestion.

    Anyway, hey Lanre, I have an iOS 12.2 on an iPhone 8 user who's experiencing a crash with our app. I'm not sure if it's NatDevice or GoogleVR where the crash is coming from. We've only been able to trace it at a pretty low level. Specifically in XCode it seems to be happening here

    Code (CSharp):
    1. IL2CPP_EXTERN_C IL2CPP_METHOD_ATTR void Bridge_CameraDevices_m56EF2D84FE24C93077E35C6A63EDD90D490F3540 (intptr_t* ___outDevicesArray0, int32_t* ___outDevicesArrayCount1, const RuntimeMethod* method)
    2.  
    3. {
    4.        typedef void (DEFAULT_CALL *PInvokeFunc) (intptr_t*, int32_t*);
    5.        // Native function invocation
    6.        reinterpret_cast<PInvokeFunc>(NDCameraDevices)(___outDevicesArray0, ___outDevicesArrayCount1);
    7. }
    I'm still trying to trace and find out more. Everything seems fine on iOS 13. Just curious if you knew of anything offhand that could affect iOS 12, or any known issues being alongside the Google VR For Unity plugin?

    We are pretty sure it is coming from GVR. But we aren't likely to get any replies from them any time soon. The issue seems related to GvrAudio_Initialize_m2441973946

    They also sent me this
    Turned out that there was an incompatibility between two different libraries (which maybe you don’t use, or maybe you do?) and they were recommending downgrading to a particular set of version numbers, or waiting for the next update. This was from 2017 so, the exact same issue is probably not still an issue, but it might point you to something? I couldn’t find any online help for NDCameraDevices returning a EXC_BAD_ACCESS crash. But, I’ll keep looking. Here is the report for what it is worth (look for the section with a workaround FIX, which I tried, but it didn’t help):

    https://github.com/googlevr/gvr-unity-sdk/issues/665

    I'm guessing I need to dig around in Google VR's guts... I'm just confused as to what's breaking it and why everything seems to work fine on iOS 13 but not on iOS 12.

    Appreciate all you do! Was a NatCam owner but was totally happy to repurchase NatDevice in order to access the 1.0.1 update, since we'd been benefiting from NatCam for years. So far have been loving the new version.

    Yeah you can try that. I wasn't able to reproduce this behaviour on my end.

    You still seem to have a misunderstanding. The gradle issue has nothing to do with NatDevice. It is because of a fix in NatShare, and NatShare is open source.

    Can you share your camera code? You shouldn't actually get a crash, because NatDevice catches any errors and instead logs it.

    I know that, as you said, NatShare requires SDK 29 or more, but I bought your NatDevice just to use OpenCVforUnity. It also involves NatShare, and your instructions also say Android API level 22+, but it does n’t work anymore. The method is used on Android API level 22 or higher, so it is not your mark error?

    Hey thanks for your support! For the crash you're facing, do you have the call stack in Xcode (the left pane should show the call stack when the crash occurs)? This function doesn't contain anything that could cause a crash.

    I've mentioned this a few times. There is a difference between the minimum SDK level (which is what you keep confusing) and the build tools version that is used to generate the actual application. The build tools version has no effect on the minimum SDK level which your app can run on. You need to upgrade it to build NatShare, but it will not prevent you from running NatShare on Android 22 and up.

    Some additional information :
    - I restart the scene, therefor I use static variables
    - I mentioned before I suspect "deviceQuery.currentDevice is CameraDevice devicecam" to become false at certain conditions. Not sure how to react when this happens, you will see I re-call Start() when it happens.
    - We test with 5 devices. Over the period of 2 days testing with at least 400 pictures taken, the crash occurred once.
    - It also seems to be related to the app going to and coming back from background, which happens a lot during the testing, and which will happen a lot when it will be live.
    - in the main code I destroy the cameracode.texture before taking a new picture (to avoid memory overflow after many pictures)
    if (cameracode.texture != null) Texture2D.Destroy(cameracode.texture);
    cameracode.texture = null;

    Additional question : I would like to Pause and Unpause the use of the camera, how can this be done ?

    Thanks for the help.

    I recommend stopping the camera when the scene is about to change. Also, don't keep static variables because keeping track of which state to keep or reset can lead to issues like this.
    This is impossible by itself. You can look at the source code for `MediaDeviceQuery`. Its `currentDevice` will never change unless `Advance` is called.
    I still recommend cleaning up your code to avoid these issues.
    You don't need to do anything when the app loses focus.
    Yup this is good practice.
    Just stop and start the camera device.

    Ok, I ripped out all the statics and do not longer reload my scene. I removed my check also... as you can see in the new attached source.
    I have added "StopRunning()" to my Pause() and "StartRunning()" to my Play() function... when you say "stop" and "start" the camera device you mean calling these ???

    I put the version in live testing tomorrow ... keep you posted on the outcome !

    Um! I found the reason, but this is also caused by you! The version of NatShare-API-1.2 you gave can be built on Android SDK 22, but changing to il2cpp mode will fail, and the version of NatShare that was given before -The API solves the problem of il2cpp but can only be built on Android SDK 29! Then you say what should I do?

    Thanks - maybe the user was doing something weird with his audio input... Will probably wait until there's another report of it occurring in the app.

    Hey Lanre, have you already gotten around to investigating this issue?

    Hello Lanre,

    I started using your asset a few days ago and tried to build your sample MiniCam scene and my app using your asset. It works great on Android! Unfortunately on iOS both projects fail to build in xCode with an EXC_BAD_ACCESS with code 1 at adress 0x0 which points to Bridge.CameraDevices(out var deviceArray, out var deviceCount) (could track it down via the debugging console of xCode) which is used in MediaDeviceQuery. Because of this bug I can't use your camera features on iOS which really is a big problem for me. Did I do something wrong or is this a known/unknown bug in the asset? And the most important: what can I do to overcome this problem?

    EDIT: The iPad I built on had iOS version 12.3.1. I tried to build on an iPhone with version 13.3.1 and it worked there. Maybe that's a hint?

    What iPhone are you testing on? The 6? There is a bug specific to the device that I've reported to Apple. I'm waiting to hear back from them.

    I'm working on it. After some investigation I found that before the very first recording, iOS reports an incorrect sample rate and channel count (channel count in some cases can be zero). When recording starts it corrects itself, but since we rely on these values before recording starts (for creating the recorder) it causes problems.

    I tested on an iPad of the 5th generation (iOS 12.3.1) and on the iPhone XS (iOS 13.3.1) so it's not the device with the bug you described. A colleague of mine also tested on an iPad Air with iOS 12.4 which also doesn't work. He tested on an iPad with iOS 13, too, which worked.

    Can you share a screenshot of the Xcode window when the crash occurs? I need to see the call stack.

    Hi,

    I just purchased NatDevice and I can't seem to be able to capture the camera output with NatCorder.
    Also I couldn't find anything in the documentation.

    Please help.

    One more thing that I am experiencing is that I cannot switch to front facing camera on my Android phone and the display is getting skewed when I rotate the phone..

    Thanks for your help.

    @Lanre
    With NatDevice, for Windows desktop as the platform; I am able to retrieve the list of available cameras, but is there a way that I can set which camera is to be used? There may be multiple webcams attached to the computer. So the user can choose which camera to use. The only method I found to switch cameras is deviceQuery.Advance(). Anything like deviceQuery.UseCamera("uniqueID") ?

    Thanks! :)

    I need to see the full thing, so share the full logs with all threads and a screenshot of Xcode.
