    I recommend upgrading NatShare to the payload-api code. It's still in development, but is fully functional on iOS.

    There's an open issue for this. I'll get this fixed on iOS this weekend.

    Great, thanks.

    I've bought NatCorder and NatMic to go along with NatCam, but I can't get the webcam quality to be anything other than very low. Whatever size and setting we put in, it records it at 1280, and pixelated. This is just through Unity preview, and not iOS tested though.

    I've altered the NatMicCorder example you gave.

    Unity 2019.2.9f1
    macOS 10.15
    NatCorder 1.6.3
    NatMic 1.3.1

    Thanks a lot, that did the trick.

    However, when we use #49 together with NatCorder to share the recorded video (with the path that NatCorder returns) we get following exception:
    ArgumentException: Value does not fall within the expected range
    (at SharePayload.cs:29)

    the sharing did work before.

    this is the code we use (from your readme):
    using (var payload = new SharePayload()){
    payload.AddMedia(videoPath);
    }


    videoPath looks like this:
    /storage/emulated/0/Android/data/com.RabbitEye.RabbitEye/files/recording_2019_10etc.mp4

    Seems to be working. I went down to Unity 2019.1.14 and exported to iPad Pro. It recorded at UHD without changing the settings

    hello lanre!

    i am in a team with "sucko", allow me to post the exception (for timesaving purposes):


    AndroidPlayer(samsung_SM-G950F@192.168.0.192) ArgumentException: Value does not fall within the expected range.
    at NatShare.SharePayload..ctor (System.String subject, System.Action completionHandler) [0x0001c] in E:\Users\cubemap\UNITY PROJECTS\Project Name\Assets\NatShare\Plugins\Managed\SharePayload.cs:29


    thank you for replying. :)

    Ah I know why. It's cos the completion handler argument is `null`. I'll fix this.

    we're almost there, now with your latest fix (completion handler argument is null) a folder is created with the name of our project, but they payload (mp4) does not appear in that directory. we didn't try with images yet, just wondering if the mp4 is the problem?

    dear lanre,

    heads up; unfortunately SavePayload does not work (latest version from your payload branch, on android 9). not with AddMedia (mp4), or with AddImage.

    Are you passing in a completion handler when creating the payload? If not, then it's an issue I've fixed so grab the updated code from GitHub.

    This bug has been fixed in #49. The iOS backend is complete, so you can copy the NatShare folder from that branch into your project.

    I commented out the old Natshare code used to create/save an mp4 to an album on the camera roll. It worked fine when I tested it on Android a few months ago with the ReplayCam example. Tried updating the latest Natshare payload api to use with Natcorder. Is this the correct way to go about adding it. I haven't been able to get it working.

    Code (CSharp):
    1.      
    2.  
    3.  private void OnReplay (string path) {
    4.             Debug.Log("Saved recording to: "+path);
    5.             // Playback the video
    6.             #if UNITY_EDITOR
    7.             EditorUtility.OpenWithDefaultApp(path);
    8.             #elif UNITY_IOS
    9.             Handheld.PlayFullScreenMovie("file://" + path);
    10.             #elif UNITY_ANDROID
    11.             Handheld.PlayFullScreenMovie(path);
    12.         //NatShare.SaveToCameraRoll(path, "TestAlbum", false);
    13.         using (var payload = new SavePayload()) {
    14.             payload.AddMedia(path);
    15.             }
    16.  
    17.             #endif
    18.         }
    19.

    Your code is correct. The Android backend of the new payload API is not complete.

    Ok. Do you have an idea on when you'll be rolling out the completed payload api?

    So, I'm trying to wait until permissions are granted before saving to camera roll (gallery).
    I have written the following but it now doesn't save at all!
    If anyone can tell me what is wrong with this code I will be very grateful!
    Thanks,



    public void OnGalleryButtonPressed()
    {
    #if UNITY_ANDROID
    if (!Permission.HasUserAuthorizedPermission(Permission.ExternalStorageWrite))
    {
    Permission.RequestUserPermission(Permission.ExternalStorageWrite);
    }
    if (!Permission.HasUserAuthorizedPermission(Permission.ExternalStorageRead))
    {
    Permission.RequestUserPermission(Permission.ExternalStorageRead);
    }
    #endif

    ShareTheGif();
    }
    private IEnumerator ShareTheGif() {
    yield return new WaitUntil(() => Permission.HasUserAuthorizedPermission(Permission.ExternalStorageRead) == true);

    Debug.Log("Gallery sharing selected.");
    string path = getPath(ProGifManager.Instance.GifName + ".gif");
    NatShare.SaveToCameraRoll(path);
    hide();
    }

    Checking the logs only confirms that my code doesn't work!
    I'm pretty sure I've just not written the co-routine properly- I'm a very inexperienced coder and it's he first time I've tried something like this...

    Can you share information about the crash? Can you post a screenshot of Xcode when the crash occurs, and can you share the logs?

    It was because Natshare payload api now only supports RGBA32 texture format.
    I changed the format and now it is working fine

    I am currently using this too but unable to share the video or see it in my gallery.
    I am exporting to iOS with this version and using the 'old' NatShare for the Android version. The video appears to record OK, shows the playback and then disappears.

    Hi, Lanre.
    I've got this error message in Android Studio. (using latest payload api)

    ERROR: Manifest merger failed : uses-sdk:minSdkVersion 18 cannot be smaller than version 22 declared in library [:NatShare:]

    Did you change the minimum SDK version at Android?

    OK, so I'm using the payload-api branch on Android, seems that it works fine to share to messages or twitter... but I can't seem to get it working to share a video (mp4 - recorded with NatCorder) with TikTok or Instagram. Also, I added a text payload, and that doesn't seem to be shared along with the video on messaging or Twitter. Anybody else have this experience? Any ideas?

    Has the payload branch removed GetThumbnail() for video?

    I was using GetThumbnail() as well, but had to update NatShare to the Payload branch to work with iOS 13. Is there any news about this function getting added back in?

    @Lanre I've been using the payload api branch on our last couple builds and we just noticed that when sharing an image on iOS to Google Drive, the uploaded texture is flipped vertically. I have replicated this in your provided test scene. This was not the case in earlier versions of NatShare. I would continue to use the previous version but my assumption is that the Payload API branch is needed on iOS 13. Is that correct?

    Hello @Lanre ,
    Using the payload-api version for iOS, on first install when the saving to library permission is not granted yet, on saving an image or a video to the camera roll, the app asks for library permission,and when allowed, the image or video does not get saved, but return a success callback and not error logs, only the next time when you click on save again and the permission is already granted.
    iOS Version: 13.2.3

    Hi @Lanre,
    I'm visiting the git everyday for the news of android bug update.
    Is it on going? I wish you could give me a rough schedule of the update.
    I've been doing nothing for a while because of NatShare Android problem. :(

    Yup. Unfortunately we've had to update the Android minimum to API level 22 because Android doesn't offer good options to get a callback once sharing has happened (and we can't deprecate the callback feature for parity with iOS as developers use this a lot).

    Can you share the logs? When an app doesn't accept a items in a sharing payload, it's usually entirely up to the app and not our code.

    The function was removed as it was out of scope for NatShare. Instead, I've been working on an open source API called NatReader that handles all things video decoding. Check it out.

    I recommend opening an issue for this. It sounds like this only affects GDrive as I can't reproduce it on other apps.

    [ATTACH = full] 530874 [/ ATTACH]Hi @Lanre,After updating to NatShare 1.2.0, errors will appear in the package. Removing core-1.0.0-rc02.aar can be packaged, but it will crash when saving the video. How to avoid mistakes?
