Hi codetricity, this might seem like a noob question but how do you set up the app permissions for the plugins on the camera? That RICOH THETA_V interface you have looks like a phone but for the camera?

I’ve managed to enable developer mode and use adb to install the oculus-go-plugin but can’t access the files on the camera from a browser, so I think I need to set the app permissions for the plugin.

Would appreciate any help, thanks.

@Adenator, thank you for your question. The plug-ins are new and everyone is a noob. :slight_smile:
Let’s share information.

Plug-in Store

First, when you get the plug-in from the store, the permissions are set for your automatically. This plug-in is slightly different, but it may be what you want:

Side-Load In Developer Mode

Second, if you want to use developer plug-ins, you can set the permissions in Vysor.
