Hey guys.

I need some help again, I tried to ask the same thing in one of the most popular android forums but didnt get anything in response.

Now, I bought an car DVR which runs on Android but it comes with its own recording app which I would like to switch out for a more advanced one. But there is a problem. When I install the new app it can not connect to the camera so I went and wandered around in the system settings and what not and it seems there is no camera oriented system files (which is kind weird because the original app works somehow...) so my question is, can I somehow install or add some generic camera drivers onto the android system? It seems quite stock android to begin with.

Thanks in advance, rabbit.

When ever I'll get my hands on a supercomputer, all I'd want to do with it is watch two gifs at the same time.

Have you looked inside the system camera APK? It's possibly (but unlikely) that the OEM put the camera libs in there. I highly doubt that, though, as I suspect part of Google's verification would require things like that to be public and available to apps from the Play Store.

Have you tried any more Camera applications? Google Play Camera. Bacon Camera, etc?
