Twin lens car cam using mobile phones.

Hi Folks

I'm wondering if it would be possible to make a 2 lens (front and rear) car cam using two mobile phones cameras connected to a RPI via bluetooth (to save a lot of wiring) the Pi to provide the usual car cam facilities.

Any thoughts?
Cheers

Re: Apps not using full screen

Success!!

As you will see, the tabs use all the screen but the app only uses about 6/7ths.

Any idea why?

Hi All.

The tabs along the top screen use all the screen but the Apps only use 6/7ths of the same screen.

Any ideas?

Re: No audio output from pi 4 at all

Just tried
speaker-test -c2 -t wav
and I get the right output, so I'm guessing this needs some app to get it running again? Downloaded both versions of Flash player but to no avail.
Still looking for ideas.
