Video capture support?

#1

How can I do video capturing using Expo?

In React-Native, we can use ‘react-native-camera’, but I don’t find a way to do it using Expo.

Hi-

Yeah, you can’t do it yet but we’re working on it. @greg is working on it actually.

In the meantime, you can eject to ExpoKit and add your own native code or react-native-camera to do this.

Can i eject from Expo then come back again?

Once you eject, it’s up to you how much native code you change which differs from Expo. If you add/change a lot of stuff, it will be hard to come back. If you are just using a different video module, it might be easier. There won’t be a single guide or tutorial you can follow, you would just need to figure it out yourself.

I recommend glancing over Should I detach? before you decide one way or the other.

Hey all,

Video capture support has unfortunately been delayed. It is still on our roadmap, but we don’t have an ETA at the moment.

Right now, you will have to eject to implement this feature, but we hope to provide this to you all soon!
