You must be logged in to obtain assets


This is an extension for Android that works on Android upto v13 and made using latest GMS 2 version.

It does require the relevant permissions to be set and requested during runtime for Android 6+

My Android Permissions extension makes this easier, you can download it here:

This extension has the following features: 1 - Take Photo: Take a photo using the phones camera app (default) 2 - Record Video: Easily record video using camera with mic sound and save as .mp4 or 3gp (whatever your phone supports). You will need to request the RECORD_AUDIO permission to allow use of the Mic. 3 - QRCODE / Barcode Scanner: It uses Zxing libraries to allow easy fullscreen scan of qrcode and barcodes and the value it reads will be returned in the Async Event.

Photos and Videos can be stored to the Temp Folder for easy access within GMS code or to external DCIM folder. Do not save to DCIM directly always use a subfolder!
