Looking for some feedback/advice on what I may be doing wrong (or if this is not possible at all?)
I am -not- well versed in RPi/CLI stuff (or anything Linux based to be fair)...and I recently just got an ArduCam for my RPi 3B.
I see that the Chromium browser does in fact support the old Adobe Flash technology (flash player plugin)..
Im an old Flash developer (I understand its dead now).. but would this (Adobe Flash) coupled with an RPi and webcam, would be a perfect for a project I have also wanted to do.
When I open Chromium and go to some URL's that have Adobe Flash objects embedded in them.. they work just fine (after enabling the prompts...etc)..
However, when some of these Flash apps that are supposed also work with a webcam,.. I am not getting a prompt to enable my camera via browser alert (you need to grant permission, not just enabled in raspi-config)...
*The above should display the webcam 'feed'.. and allow me to add overlays..etc..etc over the displayed video/display..
I am wondering if anyone who is much more knowledgeable in this area can help me troubleshoot this.
1.) Can Adobe Flash work with an ArduCam.. or any PiCam type of device that connects to the camera port? Or does this need to be a 'legit' webcam type of peripheral, that is connected to a USB port (with appropriate drivers)...??
2.) Maybe it can/will work.. but I need to install some sort of drivers for this ArduCam? I literally just connected it, enabled it raspi-config.. and ran this line via CLI:
raspistill -o testshot.jpg
I saw the 'display' of the camera show on the monitor, seemed to take a 'shot'.. then left me at the desktop again. (not sure where the image was saved to? or how to check it out?)
If anyone cares to test themselves in order maybe provide some help/direction/advice..
Here are two URL's to check out:
https://www.onlinemictest.com/webcam-te ... obe-flash/
When I go to the above.. I get the FLASH object displaying some text saying it cant detect my camera.
Here is a quick demo/attempt I whipped up to see if anything happens (it works?)..
I get the overlay/animation... but no camera feed/prompt to allow it to turn on/start running.
So.. is it because I am doing something wrong?
Does anyone have a USB based 'webcam' they can see if one of the above links works for them?
Any feedback to get this sorted is much appreciated!
