Capture Photos/Videos from Camera (Custom Render) Tap/Long press

MCvelMCvel USMember ✭✭✭

Hi all,

I already have a Camera custom render very similar to this CameraProvier where I can take Photos without any problem, the thing is that now I need to record video using the same View or Camera, I mean, when I Tap over the camera it should take a Photo, but if I long press it should record a video,

does anybody knows how can I Implement this kind of events in the Camera, or the other scenario is to have another button to record a video (Overlay)

I will really appreciate if someone can point me in the right direction on this,

thank you all!

    @MCvel : Would you mind sharing the code if possible. I am looking at custom View for Taking Photos and Confirming the taken Photo.
