What I want to do or know

I am building a spectrometer using my android phone but I am unable to use the back camera when using the chrome browser.

Background story

I am using a Nexus 5. When I go to spectral workbench on my browser it always uses the front camera.


Hi Vman what happened to me was that chrome doesn't even work with the front camera using iphone. Unfortunately It doesn't support WebRTC so it is impossible to use the Spectral Workbench with the iphone unless... you take the pictures first, using the phone rear camera (more definition) and further uploading them to the Workbench. Best

On Android, use the Firefox browser. It allows you to choose which camera to look through.
